Snarl: in defense of stalled traffic and faulty networks

by Miller, Ruth A

Condition: As New/Fine

Ann Arbor, Michigan: University of Michigan Press, 2013. Hardcover. As New/Fine. Sterling condition hardcover copy, gift-quality. Tips unbruised, spine and binding tight, pages bright and clear, paste-downs neat and tidy, and not ex-library; neither underlining nor highlighting. Dust jacket fully intact, still bright and shiny, and showing only the lightest edgewear. From the publisher's blurb: "Ruth A. Miller excavates a centuries-old history of nonhuman and nonbiological constitutional engagement and outlines a robust mechanical democracy that challenges existing theories of liberal and human political participation. Drawing on an eclectic set of legal, political, and automotive texts from France, Turkey, and the United States, she proposes a radical mechanical rearticulation of three of the most basic principles of democracy: vitality, mobility, and liberty. Rather than defending a grand theory of materialist or posthumanist politics, or addressing abstract concepts or things writ large, Miller invites readers into a self-contained history of constitutionalism situated in a focused discussion of automobile traffic congestion in Paris, Istanbul, and Boston. Within the mechanical public sphere created by automotive space, Snarl finds a model of democratic politics that transforms our most fundamental assumptions about the nature, and constitutional potential, of life, movement, and freedom." vi + 210 pp. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.
