Summary "This volume is a collection of stories about the stories we tell. They are about the ways in which the political is inscribed on human bodies and human lives, and they explore the logics and contexts in which particular forms of violence are made possible and sustained. The stories interrogate the political spaces in and around the war on terror, inquiring after the missing, the deported, the detained, the forgotten, and the dead. By extension, they are also stories that ask us lo interrogate who we think "we" are, and what the political imaginaries associated with that "we" demand of us and of others. The authors of this volume find their stories in experiences of the everyday; and indeed the war on terror has become the everyday, leaking into the ordinary spaces of human lives."--BOOK JACKET.
