work examines violence in the age of the terror wars with an eye toward the
technologies of governance that create, facilitate, and circulate that
violence. In performing a rhetorical cartography that explores the rise of the
US armed drone program as well as moments of resistive violence that occurred
during the Arab Spring directed at generating a counter-hegemony by Muslim
populations, the author argues that the problem of the global terror wars is best
addressed by a rhetorical understanding of the ways that governments, as well
as individual subjects, turn to violence as a response to, or product of, the
post September 11th terror society. When political examinations of terrorism
are facilitated through understandings of discourse, clearer maps
emerge of how violence functions to offer mechanisms by which governing bodies,
and their subjects, evaluate the success or failure of the “War on Terror.”
This book will be of interest to public policymakers and informed general
readers as well as students and scholars in the fields of rhetoric, political
theory, critical geography, US foreign relations/policy, war and peace studies,
and cultural studies.
