Abstract
I am now completing a couple of booklength manuscripts; 1) EDWARD SAID: A CRITICAL DICTIONARY, contracted with Blackwell, and 2) a collection of essays, WHEN IS THE POLITICAL? Also in process are essays on 1) the ontological turn in current theory, 2) the politics of comparison, 3) democracy and its ideological ambivalences.
