    Chapter 1 models the so-called crisis of remote Aboriginal communities and the humanitarian imperialism of the Northern Territory Emergency Response (NTER) as based on “affective facts” (Massumi) and a new body politic of “feeling political together” (Berlant). This chapter examines the other main feature of contemporary (liberal) imperialism, that of humanitarian intervention. The rise of this doctrine is traced to the end of the Cold War, and the resurgence of the cosmopolitan idea that the rights of individuals are more important than the sovereignty of nation-states, an argument also heard to justify military intervention in Afghanistan and Iraq.

    Jean Bricmont’s Humanitarian Imperialism is a book that, to use the overwrought (but in this case true) rhetoric of book blurbs, should be read by anyone concerned with rebuilding the left, stopping the Iraq war, or with the future of humanity in general.
