Mark Neocleous, War Power, Police Power – sample chapter available

NeocleousMark Neocleous’s book War Power, Police Power has just been published. You can read a sample chapter here.

In this, the first book to deal with the concepts of war power and police power together, Mark Neocleous deals with these questions and many more by using critical theory to radically rethink war power.

Neocleous generates a provocative set of claims about state power and capital accumulation, the role of violence in the making of liberal order, the police wars at the heart of this violence, and the ways in which these processes come to be called ‘peace’. And he takes the reader down some unexpected paths: the ‘war on waste’, debates about effeminacy, the proliferation of resilience and trauma-talk, drones as the culmination of colonial bombing campaigns, and no-fly zones as the perfect accompaniment for drones.

The result is a compelling book that articulates a vision of war/police power beyond the military and the police.
