1 There is a vast literature on the relation of the emergence of neoliberal economic
and state practices in relation to social and cultural formations and forms of sub-
jectivity. Highlights include David Harvey, A Brief History of Neoliberalism; Wendy
Brown’s Edgework; Aihwa Ong’s Neoliberalism as Exception; Bob Jessop’s The Future of
the Capitalist State; and many pieces by Silvia Federici, including “Precarious Labor”
and “The Reproduction of Labour Power in the Global Economy.”
