Review 'This is a thought provoking book. It challenges common assumptions about the global social and political environment we face, both in the west and at a global level. In doing so it gives voice to a critical perspective that needs to be heard and critically discussed.' John Solomos, City University London 'This is an important and nuanced discussion of the `war on terror' as a cultural project which deploys sexualized racisms as its method. We are asked to stand against the rhetoric of transnational security and instead build alternative global publics to reject the `open secrets' that make us unwilling actors in this horrific war.'
