Aspects of Violence : A Critical Theory, Hardback Book

Aspects of Violence : A Critical Theory Hardback

Part of the Cultural Criminology series


This book provides a novel approach to the social scientific study of violence.

It argues for an 'extended' definition of violence in order to avoid subscribing to commonsensical or state propagated definitions of violence, and pays specific attention to 'autotelic violence' (violence for the sake of itself), as well as to terrorism.
