audience that is its particular target; it should satisfy the formal rules, rituals and conventions of the institutions through which the meaning is being projected; and be received as logical and coherent. Because much of this performance can be challenged by disruption of the performance itself through counter-performance, mis-recognition or mis-reading of and by the audience, political performance is inherently

. In 1761 Voltaire, whose comment that ‘biblical Jews’ were the ‘most detestable people on the earth’ is regularly quoted by historians of antisemitism, authored a powerful protest against the Inquisition, delivered through the mouth of a fictional Rabbi of Smyrna. The ‘Rabbi’ called for universal recognition of ‘all the children of Adam, whites, reds, blacks, greys’ as fellow human beings and condemned an auto-da-fé in Portugal in which, Voltaire wrote, a

evident on the part of Zambian SfD NGOs, in their increasing recognition of the need to evidence impact and to be accountable. A peer leader working with an SfD NGO in a specific Lusaka community gave a notable example of the extent to which the ethos of monitoring and evaluation had become institutionalized, commenting: ‘so without giving them feedback over what that money is being used on then I am sure the funders will quickly quit doing that

public continue to maintain considerable power over their colonial employees. Kurtz’s explanation of the key to metropolitan recognition contains the throwaway insight: ‘You show them you have in you something that is really profitable, and then there will be no limits to the recognition of your ability, he would say. Of course you must take care of the motives – right motives – always’ (p. 138; emphasis added). The metropolitan Company is permanently stationed to receive all the economic profits of its colonial production. Though Kurtz can and does present the Company

similar terms), New Labour could be thought of as a compromise between social and Christian Democracy (cf. Huntington and Bale, 2002). Another interpretation suggests that New Labour is a reinvention of ‘new liberalism’ (Beer, 2001; cf. Freeden, 1999; Stears and White, 2001). New Liberalism flourished at the end of the nineteenth century and represented a shift away from classic liberalism in its recognition that individuals are socially interdependent. But because this interdepen- TZP1 4/25/2005 4:49 PM Page 15 The long march back 15 dency is undermined by

exploratory and open to further amplification by successive generations. Durkheim and Mauss worked at the interstices of concepts of civilisations as, first, spatial wholes and, second, as constituted in interaction. The imprecise, compact and ambiguous nature of their perspective puts them on the cusp of the two approaches I have posited here. Their early sketches of the characteristics of civilisations coincided with Durkheim’s survey of ethnographies of non-​stratified cultures in The Elementary Forms of the Religious Life. They brought recognition of the complexity of

refuted. I have discussed this issue more extensively elsewhere.1 Here, I wish to outline again the limits of this discursive resource. Indeed, the right to choose stands at the heart of major contemporary feminist struggles. Choice can be practiced as justifying and encouraging resistance to hegemonic formations by seeking recognition for alternative ones. Identifying as a single by choice can pave the way for late singlehood or lifelong singlehood to be a legitimate and stable identity which offers counter-narratives to existing societal norms. Yet the chosen

emancipation by itself is not human emancipation ’. 25 This recognition was not designed, however, to devalue political emancipation or treat it as a mere stepping-stone to be discarded once human emancipation was achieved, but to redeem it as a necessary though insufficient component of human emancipation. Marx perceived an intrinsic relation between political and human emancipation: political emancipation is not human emancipation but there can be no human emancipation without
