Theories of International Politics and Zombies

Summary

What would happen to international politics if the dead rose from the grave and started to eat the living? Daniel Drezner's groundbreaking book answers the question that other international relations scholars have been too scared to ask. Addressing timely issues with analytical bite, Drezner looks at how well-known theories from international relations might be applied to a war with zombies. Exploring the plots of popular zombie films, songs, and books, Theories of International Politics and Zombies predicts realistic scenarios for the political stage in the face of a zombie threat and considers how valid--or how rotten--such scenarios might be. Drezner boldly lurches into the breach and "stress tests" the ways that different approaches to world politics would explain policy responses to the living dead. He examines the most prominent international relations theories--including realism, liberalism, constructivism, neoconservatism, and bureaucratic politics--and decomposes their predictions. He digs into prominent zombie films and novels, such as Night of the Living Dead and World War Z, to see where essential theories hold up and where they would stumble and fall. Drezner argues that by thinking about outside-of-the-box threats we get a cognitive grip on what former U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld famously referred to as the "unknown unknowns" in international security.  Correcting the zombie gap in international relations thinking and addressing the genuine but publicly unacknowledged fear of the dead rising from the grave, Theories of International Politics and Zombies presents political tactics and strategies accessible enough for any zombie to digest.

    The Delectable Negro - Human...

    Winner of the 2015 LGBT Studies award presented by the Lambda Literary Foundation
     
    Scholars
    of US and transatlantic slavery have largely ignored or dismissed accusations that
    Black Americans were cannibalized. Vincent Woodard takes the enslaved
    person’s claims of human consumption seriously, focusing on both the literal
    starvation of the slave and the tropes of cannibalism on the part of the
    slaveholder, and further draws attention to the ways in which Blacks
    experienced their consumption as a fundamentally homoerotic occurrence. The
    Delectable Negro explores these connections between homoeroticism,
    cannibalism, and cultures of consumption in the context of American literature
    and US slave culture. 
     
    Utilizing many staples of African American literature and culture, such
    as the slave narratives of OlaudahEquiano, Harriet Jacobs, and Frederick Douglass, as well as other less
    circulated materials like James L. Smith’s slave narrative, runaway slave
    advertisements, and numerous articles from Black newspapers published in the
    nineteenth century, Woodard traces the racial assumptions, political
    aspirations, gender codes, and philosophical frameworks that dictated both European
    and white American arousal towards Black males and hunger for Black male flesh.
    Woodard uses these texts to unpack how slaves struggled not only against
    social consumption, but also against endemic mechanisms of starvation and
    hunger designed to break them. He concludes with an examination of the
    controversial chain gang oral sex scene in Toni Morrison’s Beloved,
    suggesting that even at the end of the twentieth and beginning of the
    twenty-first century, we are still at a loss for language with which to
    describe Black male hunger within a plantation culture of consumption.
