    One of the characteristics of the contemporary neo liberal order has been the increasing sense of precariousness in social, economic and cultural life Although this is, itself, a symptom of a wider set of changes it is also recognisable by its symptoms and markers zero hours contracts , a perpetual state of insecurity in employment and elsewhere, a growing number of people making their living from several jobs worked at different times of the week or year For many workers, this is not new consider the uncertain existence of many of the working class or the normal conditions of work in many of the cultural industries What is significant is the spread of this condition of precariousness to formerly stable jobs and work places, and equally importantly to groups within the middle class The growing number of English language explorations of precarity in the last few years is to be welcomed, although the issue has been explored in Italian and French social analyses since the mid 1990s, it seems that the Anglo phone world has only been catching up since the mid 2000s Isabell Lorey s most recent contribution to this literature, in English at least, challenges much of the approach thus far Instead of attempting to define precariousness and therefore identify who are the memb...

    A good, short introduction into thinking on precarity precariousness from a feminist thinker Lorey draws heavily from Judith Butler s work and European precarious politics Features a clear, brief intro into Foucault s thinking on biopolitics The text could be clearer at times, but the major concern is the real lack of racial colonial analysis however, this seems to be a pervasive problem for thinking on precarity in general Interesting take on our current polit...

    The prose is a disgusting paste of convoluted verbosity materially forming and de forming, the multitude of defected ideologemes, an academic atrocity of dictated verbal destruction However it does have many good ideas The conclusion left me wanting.

    After the first chapter, I wasn t too excited for this book It struck me as obfuscatory It wasn t difficult to figure out what was going on if you knew the neologisms, but it seemed unnecessarily jargony Either my perspective or the text got better in this regard after the first chapter This text delves into debates in sociology and political theory in regards to precariousness in the former and the division between public private as well as the labor work action tripartite from Aristotle and Arendt Lorey criticizes a notable sociologist for the first of these, suggesting that he views precariousness as a threat to some status quo Her argument is that precarious is becoming the new norm This means those who had previous security are now insecure She understands this as a mode of governmentality using surveillance and discipline For the latter, she cites both Virno and Arendt at length to try and suggest that both what Adam Kotsko calls Arendt s axiom the division of private labor economics from the public political and Marx s notion are production no longer work in our society because labor is no in the realm of commodity production for many Even with a massive industrial basis globally, virtuoso work has increased worldwide She suggest that this is an integr...

    Non servile virtuosity seems to be against her sort of find similarities ethic It was astute to see certain elements of self care as another cog in Chul Han s autoexploitation, co opting the affective remains of 60s psychological selfism for a generation that is bound to serve its predecessor or so it seems bound to It was also a nice nod to care ethic philosophy to note that those who demand care do so as a status symbol because those who provide it are providers insofar as they can t demand it However, she fails to connect that this devaluation is precisely because the labor is being offset onto autoexploited providers, namely, the self care ethic under precarious neoliberality And this demand to be both preventative practitioner as well as labor producer only emphasizes precarity insofar as the list of nonmentionables becomes ever extensive those who would threaten yo...

    Lorey does a thorough and timely assessment of precariousness in the modern state definitely not a casual read, as she relies references several key thinkers mainly Judith Butler and brings up her own understanding and explanations of precariousness, precarity, and precarization these are not commonly utilized or understood concepts in US political social science scholarship and rarely brought up in political or social studies debates, so new readers may find their head swimming and require further reading having read at least the two books by Judith Butler that Lorey references, and sharing their concern about precariousness, i enjoyed reading this book her concepts and explanations are full, clear, and supported effectively any citizen who wants to think longer and harder about the growing states of fear and anxiety pervading the lives of everyday people should read this book a scholarly read, for sure, that puts serio...

    Everything this book said could have been condensed into a pamphlet if it didn t repeat everything it said over and over But if one did that compress it into a pamphlet it d be very obvious that what it s saying is rather vague and kinda obvious.Quick summary precariousness is inevitable and has always been there but it was...

    I can t help but say that finishing this book did not challenge my feeling that for all the good ideas within this largely overwritten text it would have made a killer 20 page paper if not for the need to publish volumes for legitimacy and visibility Whole pages of hermetic, byzantine text that could be helpfully summarized into sentences only obsc...

    short and lucid i m thinking 1 ive often seen discussions about precarity used to exceptionalize the way white collar jobs are becoming insecure adjuncts, h1b visas which reinforces a line between the unjustly precarious middle class and the inevitably precarious margin2 interested in lorey s proposal of making care work visible as a way of collapsing the gendered pr...

    Precarization means than insecure jobs, than the lack of security given by waged employment By way of insecurity and danger it embraces the whole of existence, the body, modes of subjectivation It is threat and coercion, even while it opens up new possibilities of living and working Judith Butler argues in favour of no longer regarding common s...
