Product Description

Review

An honest and uncompromising look at violence in a myriad of forms, and the ways that it shapes individuals, nation-states, and cultures. It explores significant issues for feminists, and is well worth reading. (Hypatia: A Journal of Feminist Philosophy)

Recommended. (CHOICE)

Bat-Ami Bar On's stunning achievement in The Subject of Violence is to think, as Hannah Arendt did, 'without bannisters' about issues before which all too many minds stop, or retreat into conventional (including conventionally radical) categories. Bar On's personal questioning is fiercely passionate, radically open, widely and deeply knowledgeable: this is the work of a morally serious, courageously honest thinker. (Elizabeth Minnich, Union Institute & University)

About the Author
