Summary: "Radical Future Pasts engages a tremendous range of topics, bringing together the work of some of the best contemporary political theorists around. By examining issues of temporality, narrative, and circulation, this book highlights both the driving ideals and the quotidian realities of politics. It will be of great interest not only to American political philosophers but those from (and concerned with) the rest of the world." -- Kennan Ferguson, author of All in the Family: On Community and Incommensurability.

Written by both well-established and rising scholars, Radical Future Pasts seeks to open up new possibilities for theoretical inquiries and engagements with practical political struggles. Unlike conventional "state of the discipline" collections, this volume does not summarize the history of political theory. Rather than accept traditional ideas about the political past, the contributors reinterpret canonical and current texts to demonstrate fresh interpretations and narratives.
Led by editors Romand Coles, Mark Reinhardt, and George Shulman, and inspired by the work of Peter Euben, the contributors both explore and exemplify the range and importance of political theory's different genres while concentrating on such themes as time and temporality, the politics of tragedy, and political movements and subjectivities. A groundbreaking volume featuring the best new scholarship in the field, this provocative book will be useful to scholars and students interested in political theory and its relationship to political practice.
Romand Coles is the Frances B. McAllister Chair and director of the Program for Community, Culture, and Environment at Northern Arizona University. He is the author of Beyond Gated Politics: Reflections for the Possibility of Democracy and coauthor of Christianity, Democracy, and the Radical Ordinary: Conversations between a Radical Democrat and a Christian. He lives in Flagstaff, Arizona.
Mark Reinhardt is the Class of 1956 Professor of American Civilization in the Department of Political Science at Williams College. His books include Who Speaks for Margaret Garner?: The True Story That Inspired Toni Morrison's Beloved and The Art of Being Free: Taking Liberties with Tocqueville, Marx, and Arendt. He lives in Williamstown, Massachusetts.
George Shulman is professor at the Gallatin School of Individualized Study at New York University and the author of Radicalism and Reverence: The Political Thought of Gerrard Winstanley and American Prophecy: Race and Redemption in American Political Culture. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.
