The biopolitics of security : oil, Empire and the sports utility vehicle.

Campbell, D. (2005) 'The biopolitics of security : oil, Empire and the sports utility vehicle.', American quarterly., 57 (3). pp. 943-972.


Campbell focuses on biopolitical power, which is distinguished from sovereign power by its focus on preserving the life of the population rather than the safety of the sovereign or the security of territory. He argues that the sense of fading national colors is being resisted by the reassertion of national identity boundaries through foreign policy's writing of danger in a range of cultural sites.
