Stefanie R. Fishel redefines and extends the
metaphor of the body politic and its role in understanding an increasingly posthuman,
globalized world politics. Reframing the concept of the body politic to
accommodate greater levels of complexity, Fishel suggests, will result in new
configurations for the political and social organization necessary to build a
world in which the planet’s inhabitants actively thrive.
