* How are states made possible, constructed in theory and practice,
and what alternative possibilities are given up by conferring
legitimacy on states? * How do 'reasons of state' appropriate and
inform discourses of sovereignty, territoriality, historiography,
diplomacy, security and community? * How can we employ language to
challenge the problematic logics of international relations and
imagine alternative ways of being with and relating to others?
States of Political Discourse addresses these questions through a
series of highly original and provocative essays that engage a
range of political conditions and practices, exploring areas that
are conventionally neglected. Topics include the language of normal
and pathological states in Freudian psychoanalysis, the mythography
of Europe, the political reification of the Himalayan region, the
spirituality of cosmopolitanism, the status of the Knights of St
John, and the literary exploration of diplomacy and security.
