Judith Butler

Precarious Life: The Power of Mourning and Violence


One of America's leading feminist voices examines the world of violence and terror, and asks why some lives are more valued than others. Through five essays, this book responds to various US policies to wage perpetual war, and calls for an understanding of how mourning and violence might instead inspire solidarity and a quest for global justice.
