  • Can a Citizen Be Sovereign?
    • Abstract: Since the Rights of Man were proclaimed to be “inalienable,” irreducible to and undeducible from other right or laws, . . . man appeared as the only sovereign in matters of law as the people was proclaimed the only sovereign in matters of government.Targeted killings by drone strikes ordered by the Obama administration have provoked vigorous debate in the United States about the power the executive holds to order the killing of enemy combatants without due process. However, questions regarding the U.S. administration’s use of drones draw much of their potency from the fact that a number of these targeted persons are, irrevocably, American citizens. If the president could have stripped an American of his citizenship ... Read More

  • UNESCO and the United Nations Rights of Man Declaration: History,
           Historiography, Ideology
    • Abstract: From the first months of 1947 up to October 1948, the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) made a remarkable, and largely misunderstood, effort to directly shape the content of what became the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), which was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on December 10, 1948. Although this effort failed in its objectives, the work of UNESCO during this short time (about a year and a half) has been invested with a range of meanings and interpretations that go well beyond the historical record. The reasons for the misreading and appropriation of the work of UNESCO during this period can be understood on both historiographical and ... Read More

  • African Bureaucrats and the Exhaustion of the Developmental State: Lessons
           from the Pages of the Sudanese Economist
    • Abstract: In the popular and scholarly imagination, Sudanese history is framed as a story of successive failed states, war, and destruction. This impression is aided by the fact that with the division of the country into the Republic of Sudan and the Republic of South Sudan in 2011, Sudan became one of only two states in postcolonial Africa formally partitioned. Additionally, Sudan was embroiled in civil wars for more than two-thirds of its history.1 Given this legacy, is it possible to write of a functional Sudanese state, let alone a developmental Sudanese state?The legacy of postcolonial violence in Sudan makes it easy to forget the political triumph of Sudanese nationalists on January 1, 1956, when their manipulation of ...

  • Debating History and Memory: Examining the Controversy Surrounding Iris
           Chang’s The Rape of Nanking
    • Abstract: Among English-language audiences, Iris Chang’s The Rape of Nanking (1997) is one of the better-known books about the Nanking Massacre.1 The Nanking Massacre took place between December 1937 and January 1938 when advancing Japanese troops captured and occupied the Chinese capital. In the roughly six weeks that followed, over a hundred thousand Chinese civilians and disarmed soldiers were killed, and widespread instances of rape, looting, arson, and violence occurred.2For nonspecialist readers in the United States who had little knowledge of the Massacre, Chang’s work immediately became the definitive source on the atrocities. Although a few works on Nanking had been published in English before The Rape of Nanking in ... Read More

  • Working with the Frames of War
    • Abstract: The mood is wrong, the atmosphere stained, and something is odd about the light. These things are not easy to say, and harder to explain, but you can feel them. And now they can be seen.In the aftermath of 9/11, the American government launched the war on terror in order to impose the prosecution of its foreign policy. From the onset, the war on terror’s powerful visual and verbal narratives made it almost impossible to oppose its rationale and to suggest alternative framings. Over the years, lawyers, human rights investigators, journalists, and a very few congressmen have challenged its imposition, shedding a crucial and painful light on the elaboration and deployment of the war over time. Due to the rise and ... Read More

I’ve always been challenged by the idea of how writing and activism intersect and by poetry that makes action urgent and its nature clear.When I moved to California not long after graduate school, I was deeply interested in the American political involvement in Central America. I was wandering around the city and I would see domestic workers and gardeners riding on the bus and reading letters. These were clearly letters that had been sent from home. And this was the last moment, the historical moment, when ... Read More

  • Introduction
    • Abstract: To find the practical formulas for this never-ending reconstruction of society is the supreme task of social science. The world catastrophe places tremendous difficulties in our way and may shake our confidence to the depths. Yet we have today in social science a greater trust in the improvability of man and society than we have ever had since the Enlightenment.Gunnar Myrdal (1898–1987) was the twentieth century’s most influential social democratic internationalist.1 Throughout his long career—first as economist, then Swedish political figure, United Nations official, development expert, and prolific author—Myrdal was committed to promoting the national welfare state and a vision of economic internationalism ...

  • The Myrdals’ Eugenicist Roots
    • Abstract: It was the summer of 1934 when Gunnar Myrdal and his wife Alva published Kris i Befolkningsfrågen (The crisis in the population question, hereafter KiB), just as Gunnar, then thirty-five years old, was assuming a seat as a Social Democratic member of the Swedish Parliament.1 As a salvo from the enfant terrible of the Swedish economic establishment, the book was not merely analytical in intent but intended as a political strategy and policy manifesto for the Social Democratic Party. Long viewed as the founding intellectual document of the Swedish welfare state, KiB is also a book that in recent years has achieved a certain notoriety, since among its many policy suggestions was a proposal for the sterilization of the ...

  • Will Myrdal’s America Show Up?
    • Abstract: In the summer of 1945, Gunnar Myrdal’s “war work” seemed finally complete. Following the Allied victory in Europe, Europa Verlag Zürich printed Warnung vor Friedensoptimismus, a translation from the May 1944 Swedish original Varning för fredsoptimism (Warning against peace optimism).1 Myrdal himself would later use the phrase “my war work” to refer to his much more famous publication of the same year, An American Dilemma, his mammoth examination of America’s race relations framed “in terms of a global war for democracy.”2 Another interpretation of the “war work” traces the Swedish roots of An American Dilemma to Alva and Gunnar Myrdal’s 1941 Kontakt med Amerika (Contact with America).3 This essay pursues a third ...

  • Gunnar Myrdal’s An American Dilemma (1944) as a Swedish Text: A
           Further Analysis
    • Abstract: In the fall of 1938, the economist and former member of the Swedish parliament Gunnar Myrdal traveled from Stockholm to New York City with his wife and research collaborator, Alva Reimer Myrdal, their three children, and two nannies.1 He was in the United States to begin work on the Carnegie Corporation of New York’s comprehensive study of black Americans.2Far from being Myrdal’s own idea, the study was commissioned by the elite philanthropic organization, which had spent months searching for an appropriate director to head it. Interestingly, the foundation had never considered an American. This is because Carnegie Corporation president Frederick P. Keppel had deemed Americans too emotionally involved in American ...

  • Gunnar Myrdal and the Failed Promises of the Postwar International
           Economic Settlement
    • Abstract: During his decade of employment as head of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (1947–57), Gunnar Myrdal wrote a series of works, of varying length, on the competing aims of economic internationalism and nationalism and the possibility of their reconciliation. The longest and most systematic was An International Economy: Problems and Prospects (1956), which offered a comprehensive overview of international economics in the non-Soviet world. Myrdal’s book was both a coming to terms with the failures of the postwar international settlement and a recommitment to the ideals of the “New Internationalists”—himself among them—who had shaped it. What wartime planners in the 1940s had attempted to realize, and ... Read More

  • Welfare World
    • Abstract: “Considering that he is Secretary-General of the Economic Commission for Europe and hence immersed in European problems,” one of the early reviewers wrote of the Swedish economist Gunnar Myrdal’s An International Economy (1956), “one of the striking features . . . is that so much of it is directed toward problems of under-developed areas.”1 And just as he completed that work he was already on the road to Egypt, where, at the National Bank in October 1955, he gave the lectures that later became Rich Lands and Poor: The Road to World Prosperity (1958).2 The same year as that book appeared, Myrdal gave the Storrs lectures at Yale Law School for 1958, which took up what he defined as the central challenge of the age: ...

  • An International Dilemma: The Postwar Utopianism of Gunnar Myrdal’s
           Beyond the Welfare State
    • Abstract: Gunnar Myrdal’s Beyond the Welfare State appeared in 1960, two years after he delivered the Storrs Lectures on “Economic Planning in the Western Countries” at Yale Law School. Myrdal had become widely known in the United States as the author of An American Dilemma (1944), which had been cited in the landmark 1954 desegregation case Brown v. Board of Education.1 Where An American Dilemma sought to show white American liberals that the conduct of race relations was in conflict with the universal ideals animating their political culture (the “American Creed”), Beyond the Welfare State sought to alert the same elites that the conduct of Western states toward the developing postcolonial world suffered from an analogous ...

  • Asian Drama Revisited
    • Abstract: In early 1969, the bureaucrats roaming the halls of New Delhi’s Central Secretariat building were consumed by a mounting unease. The turn of the year had seen a spate of violence in villages across India: in Thanjavur, in the nation’s south, a group of Dalit farm workers had been massacred by high-caste landlords, upset by the campaign for higher wages in the wake of bumper rice crops. In Naxalbari, West Bengal, landless low-caste and tribal villagers had risen up against rapacious landlords and the policemen abetting them, setting off a Maoist insurgency, which continues to this day.The violence was unsettling—and largely unforeseen by India’s politicians and bureaucrats. But there was a clear pattern to this ... Read More

  • From Welfare World to Global Poverty
    • Abstract: Eric Hobsbawm famously described the twentieth century, and lived it, as an Age of Extremes. Gunnar Myrdal, who lived that century no less than Hobsbawm, writing his first piece in 1919 and his last in 1984, offered a different perspective on the era. Where Hobsbawm painted a century of division and violence, wrought primarily between West and East, Myrdal’s was a century divided between the haves and the have-nots: in which inequality, not violence, was the primary key and north-south the principal geographical register.1 Much like Hobsbawm’s Age of Extremes, Myrdal’s The Challenge of World Poverty reads today almost as a valedictory statement on that century. Unlike Hobsbawm, however, who took his Marxism ... Read More
