States of Exception by Keya Ganguly
Book DescriptionA philosophical anthropology of everyday experience, this book is also a deeply informed and thought-provoking reflection on the work of cultural critique. "States of Exception" looks into a community of immigrants from India living in southern New Jersey a group to whom the author, as a daughter of two of its members, enjoyed unprecedented access.Her position allows Keya Ganguly to approach the culture of a middle-class group (albeit one that is marginalized by racial prejudice), while the group s relatively comfortable and protected style of life offers unusual insight into the concept of the everyday and the sense in which a seemingly commonplace existence can be understood as in crisis: a state of exception. Thus, Ganguly draws on the work of the Frankfurt School, particularly Walter Benjamin and Theodor Adorno, to explore the possibilities of a dialectical critique of the everyday a state of exception informing ordinary yet crisis-ridden narratives of the self under late capitalism.
