No Go World

by Ruben Andersson (Author)
unlimited loans, One at a time

The dream of a smoothly connected Earth has ended. No Go World casts an anthropologist’s eye on the faultlines of fear now rending the glossy surface of globalization, painting large parts of our world in the deep reds of menace. It shows how risk-obsessed Western powers are distancing themselves from global trouble-spots via drones, proxies, bunkers, and borders—bringing remote danger zones right into the heart of our politics, where they come to exercise a peculiar power over our imaginations. No Go World ranges across some of the largest anxieties of our time—from migration to terrorism and war—as it asks whose purposes are served by our global map of fear, and how we may start to redraw it.
