`Drawing on a deep critical engagement with the theme of violence in political thought, Frazer and Hutchings offer a highly original treatment of a vitally important question for contemporary politics. I know of no scholars better qualified to answer it.' Christopher Finlay, University of Durham `Rich in critical insight and empirical detail, Frazer and Hutchings's book is more than a mere academic exercise. It asks about the lived reality of justice and what it might mean to take seriously questions of peaceful cohabitation.' Brad Evans, University of Bath
