Interventions by Elizabeth A. Castelli
Book DescriptionThis collection brings together top scholars to discuss the significance of violence from a global perspective and the intersections between the global structures of violence and more localized and intimate forms of violence. Activists and academics consider questions such as; are there situations in which violence should be politically supported? Are non-violent or anti-war movements in the US able to effectively respond to violence? Do we need to rethink our understanding of both 'religion' and 'secularism' in light of the current world situation? Have new paradigms been developed in response to violence? The essays in this collection offer inclusive analysis of particular situations and creative alternatives to the omnipresence of violence.

Martyrdom and Memory, Paperback (March 2007)
Suggests that Martyrs are produced, not by lived experience of particular historical individuals but by the stories that are later told about them. This work explores the central role of persecution in the early development of Christian ideas, institutions, and cultural forms and shows how the legacy of Christian martyrdom plays out in the world.
Derrida's Bible, Paperback (December 2004)
