This book systematically introduces the idea of an improper politics, and characterises democratic politics as improper in a challenge to the proper bounds of reason, accepted behaviours and the policing of proper order. Mark Devenney contributes a conceptual vocabulary that engages with the politics of the proper, propriety and property from a post-foundational perspective. He argues that this triad is central to understanding the maintenance of global inequality, both economic and political.
