In this book, Gargi Bhattacharyya examines the way in which western imperial violence associates itself with the rhetoric of rights and democracy--a project of bombing for freedom that calls into question the validity of western conceptions of democracy, rights and feminism. Such rhetoric has accompanied actions that go beyond simply protecting western interests or securing access to scarce resources. The articulations of racism that appear with the war on terror are animated by fears and sexual fantasies inexplicable by rational interest alone. Understanding this highly sexualized racism reveals the intense contradictions of imperial relations and the attempts to normalize violent expropriation.

About the Author:

Gargi Bhattacharyya teaches and researches issues of 'race' and racisms, sexuality and globalization. Her books include Tales of Dark-skinned Women (UCL, 1998); Race and Power with John Gabriel and Stephen Small (Routledge, 2001); Sexuality and Society (Routledge, 2002); and Traffick: The Illicit Movement of People and Things (Pluto, 2005).

Review:

'This is a thought provoking book. It challenges common assumptions about the global social and political environment we face, both in the west and at a global level. In doing so it gives voice to a critical perspective that needs to be heard and critically discussed.' John Solomos, City University London 'This is an important and nuanced discussion of the `war on terror' as a cultural project which deploys sexualized racisms as its method. We are asked to stand against the rhetoric of transnational security and instead build alternative global publics to reject the `open secrets' that make us unwilling actors in this horrific war.' Zillah Eisenstein

Book Description ZED BOOKS LTD, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Why is the public presentation of the war on terror suffused with sexualised racism?What does this tell us about ideas of gender, sexuality, religious and political identity and the role of the state in the Western powers?Can we diffuse inter-ethnic conflicts and change the way the West pursues its security agenda by understanding the role of sexualised racism in the war on terror?In asking such questions, Gargi Bhattacharyya considers how the concepts of imperialism, feminism, terror and security can be applied, in order to build on the influential debates about the sexualised character of colonialism. She examines the way in which western imperial violence has been associated with the rhetoric of rights and democracy - a project of bombing for freedom that has called into question the validity of western conceptions of democracy, rights and feminism.Such rhetoric has given rise to actions that go beyond simply protecting western interests or securing access to scarce resources and appear to be beyond instrumental reason. The articulations of racism that appear with the war on terror are animated by fears and sexual fantasies inexplicable by rational interest alone. There can be no resolution to this seemingly endless conflict without understanding the highly sexualised racism that animates it. Such an understanding threatens to pierce the heart of imperial relations, revealing their intense contradictions and uncovering attempts to normalise violent expropriation.
