Editorial Reviews

Review

"Contemporary States of Emergency demands that we rethink the very nature of violence, benevolence, and vulnerability in the face of what Paula Vasquez Lezama felicitously calls 'compassionate militarization." Gil Anidjar, author of Semites: Race, Religion, Literature

Format: Hardcover
The subject is at the heart of the issue of globalisation, philantropy and development. We have seen how interest motivated the Iraq war was, how about Darfour, Somalia or again North Korea. The publications trying to lift the debate about humanitarian interventions on the agenda are numerous. If you are interested in the subject matter you should read this one and the others as listed hereafter... U.N. a Cosa Nostra: The workings of an organization 'helping' the poorest of the world (Volume 1)War Games: The Story of Aid and War in Modern Times
