    Dear Professor Agamben I read with great interest your book “State of Exception”. Most useful as I wrote my book,”State Power and Democracy:Before and During the Presidency of G.W. Bush”. The Historical theme is the development of an American Police State. Thought my book mighr be of interest to you. Respectfully Andrew Kolin

      Thanks for this, but please note this isn’t Agamben’s blog. Highly unlikely he will read this. Perhaps you should email him directly?

    This is very helpful as a resource. Could you please verify that Opus Dei is volume 5 of set 2, or volume 4? Is volume 4 yet to be released or is the 5 a typo?

    Thank you again,

    I wonder if Remnants might become III, 1 at some later point. There is a bit more on The Highest Poverty here, including a link to the translation of the preface.
