Book Description

March 16, 2010 0230577199 978-0230577190
While most analyses dont define violence and regard it as an essentially contested concept, this book argues for an ontological definition of violence as a reduction of being. This enables a critical sociology to move beyond tacit acceptance of a historically contingent definition of violence as profferred by the state.
