Abstract

While there is a tacit appreciation that freedom from violence will lead to more prosperous relations among peoples, violence still continues to be deployed for various political and social ends. Yet the problem of violence still defies neat description, subject to many competing interpretations depending upon particular viewpoints.



Offering an accessible yet compelling introduction to post-war critical thought, Histories of Violence examines the problem of violence as it appears in the corpus of canonical figures – from Hannah Arendt to Frantz Fanon, Michel Foucault to Slavoj Žižek – who continue to influence and inform contemporary political, philosophical, sociological, cultural, and anthropological study.
