Summary

Body and State brings together original essays addressing various aspects of the evolving interaction between bodies and states. While each essay has different empirical and/or theoretical focus, authors consider a number of overlapping themes to appreciate the state's engagement with, and concern about, bodies. Divided into four sections, the first part, 'Bodies, States and Borders' considers how the production, regulation, policing and maintenance of borders are used to construct the body's capacity for action within and, crucially, between the multiple imaginings of the nation's 'geo-body'. Part two, 'Bodies States and Markets', extends the state's concern with the flows of bodies that make up the nation to consider how they are enrolled in the complex structures of capitalist exchange that form the basis for maintaining and contesting a set of relationships between states and markets. Part three, 'State Regulation and Deviant Bodies', examines both how states seek to discipline 'non-normal' bodies and appreciates the capacity of changes in the socio-cultural meaning and nature of bodies to resist and/or escape states. Finally, part four, 'state Surveillance and Virtual Bodies', examines the impact of new technologies and online spaces both on the intimate regulatory reach of states into and across bodies and on the nature of embodiment itself. A varied collection of essays that address important and complex topics in a readable and creative way.
