about this item

Riggan examines how Eritrean citizens imagine their state and nation when they experience the state as turning against them. She looks at how coercive state effects in the post-border war years eroded the government’s own national project, resulting in a need for more coercion and also mass evasion. Exploring the clashing versions of what the nation and its citizens should be--educated or militarized--she describes the climate of evasion which took hold in the schools and the teachers’ responses to conditions of disorder. As a whole the book investigates the tenuous landscape between nation and state under lived conditions of everyday authoritarianism. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
