International Relations in Uncommon Places: Indigeneity, Cosmology, and the Limits of International Theory1403969027, 9781403969026

Author : J. Marshall Beier
Description:The central claim developed in this book is that disciplinary International Relations is identifiable as both an advanced colonial practice and a postcolonial subject. The book explores how IR has internalized many of the enabling narratives of colonialism in the Americas, evinced most tellingly in its failure to take notice of indigenous peoples. More fundamentally, IR is read as a knowing hegemonic Western voice that, owing to its universalist pretensions, asserts its knowledge to the exclusion of all others.
