The Metacolonial State offers a novel rethinking of the relationship between Islam and the Political. The first major study that seeks to develop a critical ontology of political violence in Pakistan Offers an original argument regarding the biopoliticization of Islam through a resolutely Heideggerian reading of Agamben and Foucault s work on biopolitical sovereignty Sheds new light on the signatures of power undergirding postcolonial life, while refusing to see Pakistan as merely the passive recipient of Western formations of power Will add a bold new dimension to social science research on Islamism and biopolitics
