Liberal Strategies of Exclusion

(p.59) 1 Liberal Strategies of Exclusion
Tensions of Empire

Uday S. Mehta

University of California Press

This chapter examines the political universality and the history of political exclusion in relation to liberalism, proposing a way of linking the reading of liberal texts and the interpretation of liberal practices, and discussing anthropological capacities that are allegedly the basis of liberal universalism. It underscores the exclusionary effect of the distinction between anthropological studies, and considers the strategies through which utilitarianism effected and sustained politically exclusionary practices.

Keywords:   political exclusion, liberal practices, liberal universalism, anthropological studies, utilitarianism, exclusionary practices
