Richard Fox (Santa Fe, N.Mex.: School of American Research Press, 1991). Abu-​ Lughod attributes the term to Kiran Narayan. 7. See Lindsay Goss,“Tactical Acting Jane Fonda, GI Resistance, and the FTA” (Ph.D. diss., Brown University, 2014), for an excellent theorization of solidarity. Dr. Goss was my advisee. 8. See, for example, Spencer Golub, Infinity (Stage) (Ann Arbor: University of Michigan Press, 2001); Bert O.

Despite the timeline within, the photographs of ’80s leaders on the front cover of the paperback edition marks the transition with these leaders rather than with earlier policies. 15. See Lara D.
