Calculating the Social : Standards and the Reconfiguration of Governing Hardback
Edited by Vaughan Higgins, Wendy Larner
Examining the increasingly powerful role of standards in the governing of economic, political and social life, this book draws upon governmentality and actor network theory to explore how standards and standardizing projects are articulated and rendered workable in practice, and the objects, subjects and forms of identity to which this gives rise.
