NMD and ‘regimes of truth’

(p.100) 5 NMD and ‘regimes of truth’
National Missile Defence and the Politics of US Identity

Natalie Bormann

Manchester University Press

This chapter examines the concept of ‘regimes of truth’, which characterise the process of verifying certain types of knowledge claims, and reveals how the military defence project forms a system that produces ‘accepted’ and ‘true’ statements about threats to US security. It defines the term ‘truth’ and explains the shift from the regimes of truth to NMD/identity, also considering technology and discourses of technology.

Keywords:   regimes of truth, knowledge claims, US security, truth, NMD/identity, technology, discourses of technology
