Description

In the Wake of Terror inquires into the historical conditions and possibilities of radical change in the post-9/11 world of globalized capitalism. E. San Juan, Jr. focuses on numerous problems, including those of racism, class antagonisms, and subalternity in the United States. Global violence is also examined in relation to the anti-imperialist struggle of diverse communities in the Philippines. Analytic and critical,In the Wake of Terror is wide-ranging in scope and provocative in challenging orthodox opinions on the nature of neoliberal transnational domination and postmodernist multiculturalism. Its interdisciplinary, cross-cultural engagement with urgent contemporary issues aims to "disturb the peace" and usher in an interrogation of predatory hegemonic assumptions. Written from a historical materialist perspective, this work of cultural criticism is of interest to the academic or lay person.
