"If we do not understand precarization, then we understand neither the politics nor the economy of the present." After years of the welfare state, the rise of technology, combined with neoliberal governmental apparatuses have established a new society of the precarious. In this new way of the world, productivity is not just connected to labor in the traditional sense of work hours, but more totally, to the formation of the self: work becomes performative and affective, and personal identities seep more and more into working ones. This new mode of being has another side, however: it can lead to new forms of self-organisation, resistance, and exodus. In it we see the emergence of a new and disobedient self-government of the precarious.

"A welcome short companion to critical debates on precarity, precariousness and precarization ... Its first immediate value is that of bringing to anglophone audiences a collection of short and incisive texts that offer valuable insights into both critical debates and political practice on precarity, particularly around European networks and platforms." - Antipode "The important contribution of this thoughtful work is to let us understand finally that precarity is not a passing or episodic condition, but a new form of regulation that distinguishes this historical time." --Judith Butler, from the foreword; " "Given the brevity of State of Insecurity, Lorey impresses with the scope and depth of her engagement with the concept of precariousness and the strength of her argument." -- 3: AM Magazine
