Description

 "This book is a theoretical analysis of what could be considered the darkest side of Western modernity, which is found in the naturalization of war."[from the author's preface p.xi.] Against the paradigm of war which privileges conflict as a means to create order, the author looks at perspectives that he gathers from Jewish, Black, and Latin-American voices epitomized by the works of philosophers Emmanuel Levinas, Frantz Fanon and Enrique Dussel [paraphrase from "About the Series" p.ix -x]
