-​law remains vague. The term “non-​citizen” does not distinguish between the functional rationalities (of economics, art, science, religion, etc.) as well as the human (body, consciousness) and natural environments of society. Menke instead replaces the multiplicity of social boundary relations with the difference between citizen and non-​citizen or law and non-​law: “Utopia is the equality of possibility between the legal equality of citizens and their non-​legal inequality as 191 Postmodern legal theory as critical theory 191 non-​citizens.

Reflections on Menke’s ‘Law and violence’
Alessandro Ferrara

dimensions of experience that appear in need of legal regulation, again that claim would find counterevidence in the fact that many other human practices –​medical science for one, but also technological developments, communication technology, and economics –​produce instances of conduct, action, interests, and conflicts that appear in need of legal regulation. However, more questions concerning the thesis that law is bound to generate its own other and then to violently assimilate it are raised by Menke’s reconstruction of Benjamin’s view of law and violence, to be

Geopolitics and capitalist development in the Asia-Pacific
Mark Beeson

understanding of the political economy of security is important, especially in East Asia. Consequently, I detail the geopolitical conditions that have made politics and economics such inextricably intertwined, mutually constitutive forces across the region. 3 Following this, I briefly introduce some of the more important theoretical innovations that have made the political economy perspective such an

deregulation, privatisation, monetarism, and open international borders to allow for increasingly globalised flows of people, goods, and services. It also derives from a dual-pronged approach to domestic and international economics, founded upon theories of income distribution and aggregate employment determination. As explained by Thomas Palley (2005 , 20), these are the theories that labour and capital resources ‘get paid what they are worth’ through automatic re-stabilisation of the supply and demand process, given that ‘free markets will not let valuable factors of

which dialectical engagements between neo-jihadist organisations’ anti-capitalist posturing and their quasi-capitalist practices are investigated. After a descriptive section on neoliberalism’s origins, I outline neo-Marxist principles on the geo-economics of neoliberalism, and the relevant aspects of Bourdieusian theory. Drawing on Bourdieu’s ideas, I then describe the research design as well as the discourse and documentary methods used in the analysis. Neoliberalism in history Proponents of neoliberal policies often trace their ideological roots to the

Alva and Gunnar Myrdal’s population economics and their

Boyka Stefanova
