Politics and the Other Scene (Phronesis)
In "Politics and the Other Scene "Balibar deepens and extends the work he first developed with Immanuel Wallerstein in "Race, Nation, Class." Exploring the theme of universalism and difference, he addresses such topical questions as European racism, the notion of the border, whether a European citizenship is possible or desirable, violence and politics, and identity and emancipation.
