About the Author

Randy K. Lippert is an associate professor in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at the University of Windsor.


The work is highly original, contributing to theory regarding governmentality, as well as to knowledge regarding Canadian sanctuary practices ... Altogether, a fascinating and complex account. -- Susan Bibler Coutin, author of The Culture of Protest: Religious Activism and the U.S. Sanctuary Movement Randy Lippert's Sanctuary, Sovereignty and Sacrifice is an ambitious work that manages to successfully interrogate an empirical phenomena (sanctuary incidents) via a set of highly sophisticated theoretical concepts. Lippert's sophisticated theoretical engagement and empirical investigation are intellectually fruitful and politically timely -- Amy Swiffen * The Canadian Review of Sociology and Anthropology *
