Disobedience has been practiced and considered since time immemorial. The aim of this edited collection, Disobedience: Concept and Practice is to address the concept and practice of disobedience through the prism of contemporary ideas and events. Past writings on disobedience represented it as a practice that reveals the limits of political government or of law. Overall, it might be said that disobedience was represented as a political practice. It was not, for example, thought as a subjective exigency and its discussion in relation to law and politics was tied to an unduly narrow conception of these terms.
This volume demonstrates how disobedience operates in various terrains, and may be articulated in relation to textuality, aesthetics and subjectivity, as well as politics and law. Disobedience is multivalent, multidisciplinary and poly-local. And the essays presented here offer a rich and useful guide to its current legal, political and social possibilities.
