Titre : Political Crime and the Memory of Loss (...

Éditeur : Indiana University Press, United States

Date d'édition : 2011

Reliure : Hardback

Etat du livre : New

Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Loss is a fundamental human condition that often leads both individuals and groups to seek redress in the form of violence. But are there possible modes of redress to reckon with loss that might lead to a departure from the violence of collective and individual revenge? This book focuses on the redress of political crime in Germany and Lebanon, extending its analysis to questions of accountability and democratization in the United States and elsewhere. To understand the proposed modes of redress, John Borneman links the way the actors define their injuries to the cultural forms of redress these injuries assume and to the social contexts in which they are open to refiguring. Borneman theorizes modes of accountability, the meaning of regime change and the American occupation of Iraq, and the mechanisms of democratic authority in Europe and North America.

Synopsis : Loss is a fundamental human condition that often leads both individuals and groups to seek redress in the form of violence. But are there possible modes of redress to reckon with loss that might lead to a departure from the violence of collective and individual revenge? This book focuses on the redress of political crime in Germany and Lebanon, extending its analysis to questions of accountability and democratization in the United States and elsewhere. To understand the proposed modes of redress, John Borneman links the way the actors themselves define their injuries to the cultural forms of redress these injuries assume and to the social contexts in which they are open to refiguring Borneman theorizes modes of accountability, the meaning of "regime change" and the American occupation of Iraq, and the mechanisms and operation of democratic authority in Europe and North America.

Critique: "Analytically ambitious, drawing on classic and recent anthropology as well as political science and psychoanalysis... [Borneman] demonstrates how anthropologists can add something to [debates about] some of the important political questions of our time." Tobias Kelly, University of Edinburgh "The importance to scholarship of bringing these works together, particularly joining the German and Lebanese examples, is to provide insights on the ways these societies are working out the residues of war and violence. The notion of 'political crime' is ground-breaking in its attention to not only state-sponsored violence but that aimed toward the state." Deborah Reed-Danahay, University at Buffalo, SUNY
