Feuchtwang, Stephan (2009) Afterword: Traitors: suspicion, intimacy, and the ethics of state-building. In: Thiranagama, Sharika and Kelly, Tobias, (eds.) Traitors: suspicion, intimacy, and the ethics of state-building. University of Pennsylvania Press, Pennsylvania, US, pp. 227-240. ISBN 9780812242133
In this volume, ten scholars examine political, ethnic, and personal trust and betrayals in modern times from Mozambique to the Taiwan Straits, from the former Eastern Bloc to the West Bank. This fascinating collection studies the tension between close personal relationships, the demands of nation-states, and the moral choices that result when these interests collide. In asking how traitors are defined in the context of local histories, contributors address larger comparative questions about the nature of postcolonial citizenship.
