Focusing on citizenship, social class and migrant illegality and utilizing a number of high-profile case studies, it details the abject forms of injustice which neoliberal social and economic policies effect.
Revolting Subjects draws on a diverse range of scholarly and other research, including policy research and activist writings.

All of these thinkers are, in different ways, concerned with questions of the differential value of human life under neo-colonial conditions, social justice, the cultural and political economies which reproduce inequalities, psycho-social experiences of abjection and the forms of resistance which abjection gives rise to.
