Add to basket Add to wishlist Description Why has power in the West assumed the form of an "economy," that is, of a government of men and things? If power is essentially government, why does it need glory, that is, the ceremonial and liturgical apparatus that has always accompanied it?

With this book, the work begun with Homo Sacer reaches a decisive point, profoundly challenging and renewing our vision of politics.
