Self and others

the character’s prickliness, he appears thoroughly sociable when in the right company. At times he yearns for communication: ‘So I call out to all those nearest and dearest to me, to all men of goodwill, to all whose hearts are open to poetry and compassion: “Stop whatever you’re doing, pause with me, and observe a minute’s silence for that which is inexpressible” ’.62 He takes pride in the ‘vacant’ eyes of the Russian people since it indicates that they will never sell out, not like those in the ‘money-​ready’ land (presumably the West): ‘Yes, I like my people.

From orthodox ‘populism studies’ to critical theory
Paul K. Jones

persistent linkage between antisemitism and money and credit obsessions’. Here Hofstadter cites a 1944 essay by Bell in which he acknowledges the radical import of the 1890s Populists and then tracks in considerable detail a succession of subsequent demagogues. These ‘terrible simplifiers’, Bell states, practised ‘a grotesque transformation of an originally progressive idea’ based in the 1890s grievances with the result that ‘(t)he populist tradition … has shrunk and become twisted into a reactionary form’ with decidedly fascist potential. 20

effects – Rousseau inter alia believed that the crime rate would fall if the citizens where overwhelmed by patriotism: ‘they would refrain from picking people’s pockets and handing over large amounts of money to scoundrels’ (III: 961). However, the feeling of ‘being tied to the fatherland’ (III: 961), would not be possible if the citizens were but passive observers of, for example, ‘plays that are full of talk about nothing by love and historic ranting’ (III: 961). This disdain for theatres (which was also the main theme in Lettre à M. d’Allembert) may seem slightly odd

that money can play in determining how formal legal rights function in practice in any arrangement that permits individuals to hire legal representation. If we were really committed to equal rights under the law, we would have to devise mechanisms to ensure that rich and poor were equally secure against (and equally vulnerable to) governmental coercion. From a North American perspective at least, that would entail the development of some new

results a ‘state of domination’ (1991a: 12). In a state of domination, power relations become ‘fixed in such a way that they are perpetually asymmetrical and the margin of liberty is extremely limited’ (1991a: 12). Foucault illustrates this with reference to traditional conjugal relations of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries: we cannot say that there was only male power; the woman herself could do a lot of things: be unfaithful to him, extract money from him, refuse him sexually. She was, however, subject to a state of domination, in the measure where all

and the author-​drinker is of interest however in that the meaning of writing itself for such writers may have some connection with their investment in drinking, and vice versa, or 18 18 Introduction that in some instances writing is what replaces drinking. Fred Ex’s early dream in A Fan’s Notes is that he will one day be famous by writing ‘The Big Book’;64 in The Lost Weekend Don Birnam attempts to pawn his typewriter to get money for drink; Jack London set himself a writing target for each day before he could start drinking.

, tended to be excluded from other human scientific disciplines by the very process of their substantive-cum-methodological definition (the economist’s concern with the money economy; the historian’s concern with written documents, etc.) … to study the history of anthropology is to … describe and to interpret or explain the “otherness” of populations

, protest and disorder are still exceptional. They remain fleeting outbursts rather than sustained counteractions. This calls forth new sets of questions that supplement the political-​economic sphere. For instance, what sort of affective economies accompany the formal and informal money economies? How are the affects of hope and fear produced and experienced in relation to socio-​economic conditions, state forces, and mass culture? In what ways are political utopias and realisms alike used to support or undermine certain ideas and praxes? On the one hand, we might note
