        Homo Sacer: Sovereign Power and Bare Life

        Giorgio Agamben

        Stanford: Stanford University Press 1998

        ISBN 0804732183

      1. A highly influential book by Italian philosopher Agamber, in which he greatly expands upon Foucault’s notion of ‘biopolitics,’ considering how the nation-state abuses the Schmittian concept of sovereignty and ‘state of exception’ in order to create a new normality in which ‘bare life’—the basic conditions of human survival—become controlled and manipulated by the state. See in particular Homo Sacer and Part 3 The Camp as Paradigm of the Modern.
