Description:
Amidst 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 Americaas inner cities and prisons to afailed statesa like Afghanistan. Violence Today also gives special attention to debate within the Left about violence, including a controversial defense of armed struggle.
