Social Exclusion and the Politics of Order free pdf The politics of order has long divided those deemed fit to exercise freedom from others perceived to pose a threat to the safety and security of society, with paupers, vagabonds and unmarried mothers (among others) excluded in defence of social order, historical progress and unity. In the closing decades of the 20th century, inclusion became the explicit focus of political thought and action, partly because the excluded organised to demand recognition, equality and rights, and partly due to structural strains and dislocation. In the wake of this process of transformation, it is clear that the question of domination has been one of the central problems of modernity. The book traces out this formative process, arguing that a new mode of governing has begun to take shape, one based on participation and partnership between actors from the spheres of state, market and civil society. Taking an original yet accessible approach which combines theory with empirical analysis, the book examines the implications of this process and argues that the modern narratives of equality and emancipation have not been abandoned so much as transformed. The new arts of government anticipate disturbances while recruiting the socially excluded into the dual task of governing their self and managing order. Drawing on recent Foucauldian-inspired research and governmentality theory, the book will be a valuable resource for researchers and students with an interest in the changing nature of government and policy, and in particular those studying policy innovations in the field of nomadism, disability, youth and lone parenting.
