The unifying idea of THE POLITICS OF TIME is that time is an object of power relations. Chapters are concerned with different forms of objectification, various contests of power that shape time as a concept and as a resource, and the multiplicity social constructions of time. The emphasis is to ask questions about what time is, how it is reckoned, and what standard is used to measure it.
