Product description

Review

'Keane's is a learned, at times almost magisterial, book. He writes easily and with grace about a variety of relevant topics from liberal political theory to contemporary apocalyptic terrorism, from Sorel to Muslim fundamentalism. At every turn the reader is taken on a gambit into a relevant literature and comes away braced by the journey. It is descriptively ambitious yet energized by a normative argument. It is as current as today's politics yet in touch with classic traditions in political theory and sociology. As a result, Violence and Democracy is impressive indeed.' Austin D. Sarat, Amherst College, Massachusetts

Book Description

John Keane offers an account of the origins of violence, its consequences, its uses and remedies, and the relationship between violence and democracy. Rejecting the view that 'human nature' is violent, Keane shows why mature democracies do not wage war upon each other, and why they are sensitive to violence.
