Taming the Revolution


Since the founding of the United States of America, the white power structure has engaged in an unceasing effort to ideologically and politically disorganise and sedate its Black population, through incremental concessions and symbolic gestures. Joshua Briond shows how these “colonial lullabies” have shaped the course of US history. Recontextualising major historical events from the Civil War, Reconstruction and Jim Crow eras, through to the Civil Rights Movement, the expansion of the carceral state and even the Obama presidency he argues that each period produced distinct types of reform, all mobilised to neutralise Black struggles and sustain white hegemony. ‘Taming the Revolution’ builds a schematic genealogy of the white power structures’ shapeshifting capacity. By addressing the political-cultural technologies of neoliberal reformism in the contemporary moment an ever-evolving toolkit of pacification, domestication and cooptation Briond demystifies different forms of state and extra-state adaptation to the insurgencies of oppressed peoples.
