Elusive Margins: Consuming Media, Ethnicity, and Culture (Google eBook)
As the modern state enters the stage of its liquidation, it is apparent that public discussion regarding ethnoracial diversity dominates the social sphere. Diversity has become a myth ready for consumption in various cultural spaces: politics, literature, mass media, advertising, leisure activities.
This book deals with the patterns of exclusion, falsehood, and disorder constructed systematically by power elites in order to obscure diversity and quash the autonomy of subordinated communities.
William Anselmi and Kosta Gouliamos go beyond critical analysis by proposing a nomadic-transcultural federation to replace the existing model of a multicultural Leviathan; such a proposal and plan for action can stop citizens from becoming consumers of elusive margins.
