The Thanksgiving Turkey Pardon, the Death of Teddy's Bear, and Tthanksgiving Turkey Pardon, the Death of Teddy's Bear, and Tthanksgiving Turkey Pardon (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.942

Each Thanksgiving, the president of the United States symbolically pardons one turkey from the fate of serving as a holiday dinner. In this pamphlet, anthropologist Magnus Fiskesju00f6 uncovers the hidden horrors of such rituals connected with the power of pardon, from the annual turkey to the pardoning of the original Teddy Bear. It is through these ritualized and perpetually remembered acts of mercy, Fiskesju00f6 contends, that we might come to understand the exceptional—and troubling—status of the "War on Terror" prisoners being held by the United States at Guantu00e1namo Bay.
"In The Thanksgiving Turkey Pardon, Swedish anthropologist Magnus Fiskesju00f6, see in the annual presidential reprieve of an otherwise doomed turkey something much more than a lark. (Just ask a vegetarian; it's no joke.) 'It is really a symbolic pardoning act which, through public performance, establishes and manifests the sovereign's position at the helm of the state by highlighting . . . his power to control matters of life and death.' That observation leads Fiskesju00f6 to some troubling thoughts on the exercise of U.S. sovereignty, from Teddy Roosevelt's big-stick era to the holding of prisoners at Guantu00e1namo."—Jennifer Howard, Washington Post Book World
