Violence Today by All Professors in Political Science Leo Panitch
Book DescriptionAmidst the carnage of the First World War, Rosa Luxemburg posed a stark choice for humanity: socialism or barbarism. Violence Today asks if current patterns mark a decent into the barbarism that Luxemburg feared and if a just society, one capable of transcending the endemic violence of the neoliberal order, is possible in the new century.This powerful and provocative new collection explores the roots of violence military, terrorist, criminal, and casual in contemporary society. It analyzes the social context, history, and structure of modern violence, casting light on patterns and practices from America s inner cities and prisons to failed states like Afghanistan. Violence Today also gives special attention to debate within the Left about violence, including a controversial defense of armed struggle.Contributors: John Berger, Leo Panitch and Colin Leys, Peter Thomas, Vivek Chibber, Christian Parenti, Ruth Wilson Gilmore, Georgi Derluguian, Sofiri Joab-Peterside, Ulrich Oslender, Achin Vanaik, Barabara Harriss-White, Lynne Segal, Joe Sim and Steve Tombs, Dennis Rodgers, Avishai Erlich, Philip Green, Garance Upham, Mary des Chenes and Stephen Mikesell, Samir Amin."
