"Anyone who doubts that violence is endemic, pervasive, and central to the operations of the modern world system should read Violence and Politics. It shows us the range of the objects of violence and the multiplicity of its forms. A crucial aid to lucid thinking." -- Immanuel Wallerstein, Yale University
"The violence that targeted the economic and military pulses of American power has tested once again the peaceful promises of globalization. While edited before the attack on America, the insightful essays contained in Violence and Politics illuminate critical and multifaceted dimensions of violence in a globalized world. This reader could not have been timelier for students and scholars interested in grappling with the dark side of globalization." -- Micheline Ishay, University of Denver
