often didactic. At times, it comes off as a communist lesson or parable about the importance of working-class organisation, teamwork, and coalitional politics (which is unsurprising given Feinberg’s political work and affiliations). But despite its lacklustre prosaic quality, it is an important text. It highlights a number of timely themes and prompts critical investigations, asking us, for example, to

Both, in a sense, are security practices given that they respond to the incursion of mortality (the negative foundation, which eludes meaning) and attempt to re-secure the production of meaning, certainty and politics. It is interesting to see this mirroring across state and civil society practice because, as was postulated in

In the City of Sunderland’s joint response exercise, the introductory preamble contained a vague reference to ‘East European political issues’ – which was later revealed to be a crucial detail once the exercise focused upon a lorry carrying chemicals that was found to have Polish registration (Aradau and Van Munster 2012 ).
