* How are states made possible, constructed in theory and practice, and what alternative possibilities are given up by conferring legitimacy on states?
* How do 'reasons of state' appropriate and inform discourses of sovereignty, territoriality, historiography, diplomacy, security and community?
* How can we employ language to challenge the problematic logics of international relations and imagine alternative ways of being with and relating to others?

States of Political Discourse addresses these questions through a series of highly original and provocative essays that engage a range of political conditions and practices, exploring areas that are conventionally neglected. Topics include the language of normal and pathological states in Freudian psychoanalysis, the mythography of Europe, the political reification of the Himalayan region, the spirituality of cosmopolitanism, the status of the Knights of St John, and the literary exploration of diplomacy and security.
