Critique of Violence is a highly original and lucid investigation of the heated controversy between poststructuralism and critical theory. Leading theorist Beatrice Hanssen uses Walter Benjamin's essay 'Critique of Violence' as a guide to analyse the contentious debate, shifting the emphasis from struggle to dialogue between the two parties. Regarding the questions of critique and violence as the major meeting points between both traditions, Hanssen positions herself between the two in an effort to investigate what critical theory and poststructuralism have to offer each other. In the course of doing so, she assembles imaginative new readings of Benjamin, Arendt, Fanon and Foucault, and incisively explores the politics of recognition, the violence of language, and the future of feminist theory. This groundbreaking book will be essential reading for all students of continental philosophy, political theory, social studies and comparative literature.

Dieser umfasst fünf in sich abgeschlossene Fassungen aus der Zeit zwischen Herbst 1935 und Sommer 1936 sowie zahlreiche Manuskripte zur Weiterarbeit, die zwischen 1936 und 1940 entstanden sind. Sowohl die erste Fassung wie auch andere theoretisch bedeutsame Manuskripte werden damit erstmals zugänglich gemacht. Der Kommentarteil erörtert detailliert die Entstehungsgeschichte und erschließt die vielfältigen Zitat- und Quellenbezüge. Bislang unbekannte Zeugnisse zu Benjamins Publikationsbemühungen und zur damaligen Rezeption werden im Dokumentarteil abgedruckt. Das Nachwort des Herausgebers erhellt den politischen Kontext der Schrift und stellt deren ästhetische wie medientheoretische Aktualität für eine postkapitalistische Perspektive heraus.

This book demonstrates how local contexts of urbanization and cultures of work are intimately meshed together. Each chapter explores a discrete dimension of the way people organize their working lives in post-industrial cities, taking close account of the social and environmental impact of this balancing act. The book features cross-national and inter-city comparative household level research, highlighting significant contradictions underpinning the nature of production, consumer expectation, work-life balance and urban environmental quality.
