In recent years, political and social theory has been transformed by the heterogeneous approaches to feeling and emotion jointly referred to as 'affect theory'. These range from psychological and social-constructivist approaches to emotion to feminist and post-human perspectives. Covering a wide spectrum of topics and ethnographic contexts-from engineering in the Andes to household rituals in rural China, from South African land restitution to migrant living in Moscow, and from elections in El Salvador to online and offline surveillance among political refugees from Uzbekistan and Eritrea-the chapters in this volume interrogate this 'affective turn' through the lens of fine-grained ethnographies of the state. The volume enhances the anthropological understanding of the various ways through which the state comes to be experienced as a visceral presence in social life.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"A brilliant contribution that brings political anthropology into ethnographic and conceptual conversation with affect theory. Each of the book chapters provides a unique ethnographic angle on 'affective states, ' with a fantastic, field-defining introduction." Yael Navaro, University of Cambridge

"A pioneering volume on contemporary political life that offers an exciting new approach to theorizing the state through the lens of affect, one that focuses our attention on the powerful structures of sentiment that mediate relations between citizens and government. A must read for those who want to understand the affective intensities of politics in these very uncertain times." Christina Schwenkel, University of California, Riverside
