Crisis is everywhere: in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, and the Congo, in our housing markets, money markets, financial systems, state budgets, and sovereign currencies. In Anti-Crisis, Janet Roitman steps back from the cycle of crisis production to ask not just why we declare so many crises but also what sort of analytical work the concept of crisis enables. Luke McDonagh finds this book gives an important account of the dangers of engaging with arguments solely from within a crisis narrative, and gives the reader much to ponder.
