Kurzbeschreibung

Violence - from state coercion to wars and revolutions - remains an enduring global reality. But whereas it is often believed that the point of constitutional politics is to make violence unnecessary, others argue that it is an unavoidable element of politics.

In this lucid and erudite book, Elizabeth Frazer and Kimberly Hutchings address these issues using vivid contemporary and historic examples. They carefully explore the strategies that have been deployed to condone violence, either as means to certain ends or as an inherent facet of politics. Examining the complex questions raised by different types of violence, they conclude that, ultimately, all attempts to justify political violence fail.

This book will be essential introductory reading for students and scholars of the ethics and politics of political violence.

'Drawing on a deep critical engagement with the theme of violence in political thought, Frazer and Hutchings offer a highly original treatment of a vitally important question for contemporary politics. I know of no scholars better qualified to answer it.'
Christopher Finlay, University of Durham

'Rich in critical insight and empirical detail, Frazer and Hutchings's book is more than a mere academic exercise. It asks about the lived reality of justice and what it might mean to take seriously questions of peaceful cohabitation.'
Brad Evans, University of Bath
