Summary
Since German reunification in 1990, there has been widespread concern about marginalized young people who, faced with bleak prospects for their future, have embraced increasingly violent forms of racist nationalism that glorify the country's Nazi past. The meaning of hate, Nitzan Shoshans riveting account of the year and a half he spent with these young right-wing extremists in East Berlin, reveals how they come test contemporary Notions of national identity and defy the clicȟs that others use to represent them. Shoshan situates them within what he calls the governance of affect, a broad body of discourses and practices aimed at orchestrating their attitudes toward cultural difference-- from legal codes and penal norms to rehabilitative techniques and pedagogical strategies. Governance has conventionally been viewed as rational administration, while emotions have ordinarily been conceived of as individual states. Shoshan, however, convincingly questions both assumptions. Instead, he offers a fresh view of governance as pregnant with affect and a paint that has publicly mediated and politically administering. Shoshan argues that the state's policies push these youths into a right extremists corner instead of integrating them in ways that could curb their nationalist racism. His point is certain to resonate across European and non-European context where, amid robust xenophobic nationalisms, hate becomes precisely the object of public dispute. Powerful and compelling, the management hate provides a rare and disturbing look inside Germany's right-wing extremist world, and shines critical light on a German nationhood haunted by its own historical contradictions. --
