  • Description

    Homeland Securities, a special issue of Radical History Review, addresses the complex challenge for radical scholars and activists presented by the shift in U.S. domestic and international agendas in the wake of September 11 and the accompanying rhetorics of national defense, the war on terrorism, and the declaration of “homeland security.” While the agencies and policies grouped under the rubric of homeland security ostensibly address the safety of the United States and its citizens, the implications of homeland security reach far beyond the borders of the United States and raise questions about transnational mobility, imperialism, nation, and citizenship.

    The contributors to this special issue offer critical perspectives on the many fronts of the global “war on terror” and reveal continuities and discontinuities within familiar strategies of political control, racial discrimination, and state-sanctioned violence. Featured articles explore such issues as the intersection of racism, homophobia, and imperialism at Abu Ghraib; the conundrum faced by economically disadvantaged Latino youth who find themselves doubly targeted by aggressive army recruitment and anti-immigration activity; and the ways that rhetoric and policies of homeland security have provided new legal tools in the ongoing project of defining “real Americans” through exclusion and state violence. Other essays examine the role of the military in civilian spaces, the right-wing assault on progressive historians and on area studies, librarians’ efforts to protect the privacy of their patrons’ records in light of the Patriot Act, and the role of intellectuals in resisting everyday forms of control and surveillance.
