The Monster as War Machine

Mabel Moraña
ISBN: 9781604979862

Moraña achieves this immense feat through lucid yet vivid prose that thoughtfully weaves a series of what at first glance might appear to be divergent and scattered theories, into a set of intense and thought-provoking constellations of ideas and experiences.—Joanne Rappaport, Georgetown University; and President of LASA, 2016–2017 Read More..
