Summary: Violence and Its Alternatives fills the existing gap in the literature on violence with a collection of essays from the most influential writers in the fields of politics, psychology, sociology, gender studies, and race studies. Methodologically diverse and intellectually wide-ranging, it appeals to specialists, students, and the interested general reader. This collection has two features not found in any other discussions of violence: first, a full spectrum of views
ranging across disciplines, from now-classic treatments of the subject by philosophers such as Hannah Arendt and Frantz Fanon to postmodern considerations of violence embedded in social structures from the likes of Michel Foucault and Jacques Derrida; and second, the first interdisciplinary study of nonviolence, a thoughtful and serious look at the alternatives to violence from spiritual leaders such as Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr.
