In seinem autobiographischen Roman ›Im Herzen der Gewalt‹ rekonstruiert der französische Bestsellerautor Édouard Louis die Geschehnisse einer dramatischen Nacht, die sein Leben auf den Kopf stellt. Auf der Pariser Place de la République begegnet Édouard in einer Dezembernacht einem jungen Mann. Eigentlich will er nach Hause, aber sie kommen ins Gespräch. Es ist schnell klar, es ist eine spontane Begegnung, Édouard nimmt ihn, Reda, einen Immigrantensohn mit Wurzeln in Algerien, mit in seine kleine Wohnung. Aber was als zarter Flirt beginnt, schlägt um in eine Nacht, an deren Ende Reda Édouard mit einer Waffe bedrohen wird. Indem er von Kindheit, Begehren, Migration und Rassismus erzählt, macht Louis unsichtbare Formen der Gewalt sichtbar. Ein Roman, der wie schon ›Das Ende von Eddy‹ mitten ins Herz unserer Gegenwart zielt – politisch, mitreißend, hellwach.

From her childhood explorations with vivisection through her adult sense that human life was characterized by cyclical encounters with death and disaster, Willa Cather was devoted to making art in the face of violence. Twenty-three critics contribute to the fullest explication to date of Cather, violence, and the arts, exploring thematic representations of violence in war, suicide, sexual trauma, shame, and rage as well as aesthetic responses to violence through literary choreographies and encounters with kind and unkind things. In this volume, Willa Cather emerges as a resource for survival in an age of terror, an artist who encourages her readers to feel at home in the nexus of creativity and terror, and to seek creative responses to the horror of human life. According to the critics gathered here, Cather's aesthetic is built upon surfaces below which are violent and deadly depths, and about which her best lives attempt to soar.

Historians consider the previous century to have been one of the most violent periods in human history. As we move into an era where violence is sanitized and normalized in the media, and depicted as glamorous and fun, how will we relate to the violence in our midst? Why do people and their governments choose to engage in violent activity? How to peaceful people who live under violent conditions such as warfare or domestic abuse make sense of it? Catherine Besteman tackles these questions in this multi-disciplinary anthology that explores the topic of violence from a wide variety of perspectives. The first section focuses on state violence and deals with nationalism, warmaking and the Nazi genocide. The second section treats the question of anti-state violence with essays on the IRA, Sihk rebels and the paramilitary conflict in the Balkans. The third section examines criminal violence such as armed robbery, murder and sexual assualt while the final section explores how ordinary citizens respond when their societies are suffused with violence. Combining classic essays by Max Weber and Hannah Arendt, with contemporary treatments by leading scholars such as Michael Taussig and Julie Peteet, this anthology is designed for course use and is accessible to undergraduate and graduate students. Contributors: Max Weber, Charles Tilly, Hannah Arendt, Zygmunt Bauman, Martha Crenshaw, Deborah Poole, Cynthia Mahmood, Begonia Aretxaga, Rhonda Copelon, Jack Katz, Deborah Cameron, Elizabeth Fraser, Michael Taussig, Julie Peteet, Nancy Scheper-Hughes, and Carolyn Nordstrom.

Even though violence often functions irrationally, recent research has suggested that, as a form of nonverbal communication, violence follows certain rules. The essays explore this phenomenon, with a special focus on collective violence. They investigate examples taken from the cultural and literary history of the premodern era to examine rules of violent action, rules that provoke violence, and rules about discussing violence.
