Description :
The paper focuses on geopolitical civil society, emphasizing the role that rationalized norms and emotive care-ethics play in molding and facilitating certain forms of geographical knowledge and subsequent foreign interventions. The focus is on American evangelical actors and their specific geopolitical vision, which is largely based on the perceived universal authority of the Bible. The paper also traces the emergence of an ethics of care that has developed within evangelical circles regarding the people of southern Sudan.
