This dissertation theorises the depoliticised conditions of late capitalism through what I call a 'neoliberal and militarised post-politics'. It argues that ours is a neoliberal and militarised post-political society that cannot imagine disruptive revolutionary events. The dissertation addresses key debates on governmental social regimes of neoliberal post-politics, the inseparability of neoliberalism and war/militarism, and the historical/geographical unevenness of global capitalism. In so doing, it offers an original topological analysis that makes the following critical interventions: an exploration of how the much-discussed social regimes of sovereignty, discipline and control relate to each other in the production of neoliberal governmentality; an analysis of the affective logic each regime entails and how they inter-relate; a proposal for a fourth regime, 'terrorism', and a theorisation of its associated affect, 'spite'. Finally, radical critique as divine violence is set against neoliberal and militarised post-politics.
