Editorial Reviews


Each chapter is at once informative and engaging, broadening our comprehension of contemporary violence by historicizing and problematizing issues of force, territory, and authority.

(Jamie Goodall H-War)


A thought-provoking and refreshing collection of essays offering an important reminder that the 'new' is sometimes quite old and that distinctions such as public and private, states and markets, may be more a reflection of disciplinary and social hegemony than an actual organization of global power. This book should be required reading for all classes in international relations.

(Ronnie D. Lipschutz, University of California, Santa Cruz)
