The Ruse of Repair

US Neoliberal Empire and the Turn from Critique

The Ruse of Repair

Book Pages: 328 Illustrations: 9 illustrations Published: August 2021


“This brilliant study is a long overdue critique of the flight from paranoid reading to reparative feeling in the humanities. Patricia Stuelke historicizes the turn to repair as symptom of, rather than as solution to, US violence, militarism, and counterinsurgency. Her examination of the rise of US neoliberal empire in the 1970s and 1980s from Southeast Asia to Latin America to the Middle East is sui generis and eye-opening.” — David L. Eng, Richard L. Fisher Professor of English, University of Pennsylvania
