Life Beside Itself is a profound reflection on the psychic life of biopolitics and how the biopolitical state, committed to enhancing the life of the population, renders lifeless a people’s particular form of life. Lisa Stevenson writes with attentiveness to the care that binds the living and the dead in Inuit communities. That is itself a form of ethical living. Her writing is surely touched by grace. Along the way, Stevenson troubles our commonsense understanding of what life is and what it means to care for the life of another

Life Beside Itself shows that despite this, Inuit were never fully made into biopolitical subjects: instead, we come to know the friends and acquaintances that animate Stevenson’s work as they cultivate multiple forms of life and of care. This is a beautiful and thoughtful book that will reward a wide range of readers, whether they come to it with an interest in health care and its histories, in the Canadian North, in forms of life and death, or simply in a moving and generously narrated story.

Reviews:
  • Mullador
this moving and thoughtful book should be better known. A special work of anthropology/ sociology/epidemiology.
  • Ynneig
Stevenson does a remarkable job illuminating the complexities of suicide without a reductionist position. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in historical and contemporary influences of suicide among disenfranchised populations in North America.
