The Politics of Bodies at Risk is an academic tour de force. Informed by a broad range of contemporary scholarship, this book shines a critical light on one of the most urgent and often ignored issues of our times: the disposability of human beings. Struble’s study never lets us forget the lives that are truly at the center of all we study and write about.
