Politics at the End of History

Essays in Postmodernist Thought


Fabio B. Dasilva and Mathew Kanjirathinkal

Politics at the End of History contains original and seminal contributions toward the ongoing debate surrounding the problems of modernity and postmodernity. These studies cross a mumber of theoretical perspectives and disciplinary boundaries, including philosophy, political theory, cultural analysis, anthropology, and sociology. They fall into two major categories: those that explore theoretical issues of postmodern politics and social experiences, and those that analyze specific political structures and events.
Contents: End of history, postmodernism and justice, Foucault, history at the end of politics, Rimbaud, cultural relativism, Tocqueville, endgame of modernity, herstories of East Berlin women, postmodern Japan, American power elite, and clientelism in Brazil.
