About this title


How do you write history when it's no longer linear? In Bloodrites of the Post-Structuralists, respected political theorist Anne Norton reminds us of the real interplay between words (laws, scriptures, myths, and texts), and the world of flesh. Drawing from sources as diverse as foundational myths from Sarah in the bible, Marat in his death bath, and thinkers like Hegel and Foucault, Norton reinterprets the relationship between word and flesh and places it in historical context. The French and English Revolutions, as well as the period of anti-colonialism and post-colonialism are used to frame her discussion of word and body, and their historical significance.

From the Inside Flap:

"I am a long-standing admirer of Anne Norton, who is a courageous and brilliant writer."
—Homi Bhabha, Harvard University

"This ensemble of meditations on the bloodrites of European empire is breathtaking. Contemplating revolution, colonialism and male dominance through the intertwining of the word, the eye, and the (sexed, sexual, and raced) body, Norton has penned a poetics of modern political power at once brilliant, devastating, and sublime."
—Wendy Brown, University of California, Berkeley

"How do words and flesh interweave in the politics of race, sex, kinship, war and revolution? It takes a superb stylist and a passionate intellectual to render such complex relations palpable. That is exactly what occurs in Bloodrites of the Post-Structuralists . Anne Norton infuses us with joy, horror, disgust and desire, even as she shows us how those passions saturate politics. A provocative study that lingers in the flesh after you put it down."
--William E. Connolly, Johns Hopkins University
