Policing narratives and the state of terror by Robin Truth Goodman ( )
8 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, world politics have increasingly mirrored plots of detective novels, with high-profile criminal investigations that cross multiple borders and the internationalized law enforcement practices associated with the "War on Terror." Policing Narratives and the State of Terror examines the relationship between domestic policing and International policy through an analysis of contemporary popular detective fiction, police procedurals, police autobiography, security reports, and chronicles of domestic spying. Robin Truth Goodman connects these accounts of policing to the changing shape of the contemporary nation-state, marked by the denationalization of labor; commercial and criminal laws that jump borders more quickly than civil law protections; and the replacement of legal precedent by unrepeatable, exceptional executive decisions. Working at the intersection of literature, international law, and globalized commerce, Goodman astutely pinpoints how policing has become an increasingly troublesome instrument of empire, particularly in terms of national sovereignty and the growing numbers of mercenary private security forces."--Jacket

Strange love : or how we learn to stop worrying and love the market by Robin Truth Goodman ( Book )
5 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Saltman and Goodman show how corporate-produced curricula, films, and corporate-promoted books often use depictions of family love, childhood innocence, and compassion in order to sell the public on policies that ironically put the profit of multinational corporations over the well-being of people. In doing so, the authors reveal the extent to which globalization depends upon education and also show how battles over culture, language, and the control of information are matters of life, death, and democracy
Gender work : feminism after neoliberalism by Robin Truth Goodman ( Book )
9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Recently, labor has acquired a re-emergent public relevance. In response, feminist theory urgently needs to reconsider the relationship between labor and gender. This book builds a theoretically-informed politics about changes in the gendered structure of labor by analyzing how the symbolic power of gender is put in the service of neoliberal practices. Goodman traces the cultural contextualization of 'women's work' from its Marxist roots to its current practices. From the income gap to the gendering of industries, Goodman explores and critiques the rise of corporate power under neoliberalism and the ways and whys that femininity has become one of its principle commodities

Human half-breeds : women, sex and colonial crossings by Robin Truth Goodman ( Book )
4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This dissertation explores possible points of dialogue between current feminist debates, queer studies and postcolonial theoretical concerns by discussing the figuration of female sexuality as a border principle in colonial regulations of identities. It works on the discourses of hybridity arising from, predominantly, three different historical contexts: the postcolonial theoretical debates, the social and scientific understanding of racial/special crossings in late nineteenth century Europe, and their applications within narratives of identity in late twentieth century Latin America. It then asks how marriage, and women's roles in reproduction, are formulated around the question of racial relations and their epistemologies, and how colonial and postcolonial racial identities are figured through articulations of feminities
