Violence Et la Paix: de la Bombe Atomique Au Nettoyage Ethnique
This is an outstanding collection of essays about the many faces of violence during and after the Cold War. Building a bridge between political philosophy and the analysis of current affairs, as well as between the author's personal experience and the collective dramas of the twentieth century, Pierre Hassner stresses two major features of our time: the decline of interstate and global war as a realistic prospect and the increase in domestic and trans-national violence.
