“The state may be a smashing, merciless fist. But for certain exploited peoples, statehood was and is a dream.”
—Tobi Haslett

—David Velasco

“Barney explicitly addresses the American romance with the gun—as aesthetic machine, potent weapon, and symbol of fierce individualism.”
—Catherine Taft

—Zack Hatfield
