Political theorists have long debated whether globalization marks a novel form of political and economic order or is simply a reconfiguration of older capitalist and imperialist imperatives. Carlo Galli contends that it is neither; rather, globalization is the development, in a new and destructive direction, of the unstable and precarious equilibrium that constituted modern political space from its very inception.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Carlo Galli's "Political Spaces and Global War" offers an extremely valuable analysis of globalization: its opportunities, its risks, and its antinomies. Galli adopts a historical and conceptual approach to explore the complex relationship between globalization and the political categories of modernity, and arrives at a deeply troubling conclusion about the fate of Western civilization." --Roberto Esposito, author of "Bios"

RobertoEsposito, author of "Bios""


"Once in a while, a thinker comes along and poses the familiar questions of political theory in a startling new way. Carlo Galli does just that. He relentlessly tracks the political reproduction of space in politics and political theory to show how the modern quest for freedom, equality, democracy, sovereignty, universality and more all turn on a politics of space now effaced by the global war, which despatializes and deinstitutionalizes politics, losing the difference between sky, land, and sea and bringing traditional theaters together in a war without strategy or frontier. With this English translation, new readers will discover Galli s unique voice, illuminated by Adam Sitze, whose useful introduction sets Galli s work in the context of post 1968 Italian politics and theory." Bonnie Honig, author of "Emergency Politics: Paradox, Law, Democracy""
