Philosophy of Nonviolence

Revolution, Constitutionalism, and Justice beyond the Middle East

Chibli Mallat

  • Considers the scope of the Middle East Revolution through the different inter-connected perspectives of nonviolence theory, constitutionalism, and post-dictatorship justice
  • Focuses on the unique nexus of philosophy and revolution by exploring the close interaction between mass-based nonviolence, and the demands for accountability that inspired the revolution
  • Maintains thoroughly abstract and philosophical arguments while substantiating those arguments in historical context
  • Provides an interdisciplinary analysis embodying philosophy, law, history, political science, and international relations
  • Offers a mix of analytical, thorough research, and practical measures that derive from and inform the theory
  • Includes a scholarly array of legal, philosophical, and religious treatises and documents from Hammurabi to ongoing international criminal law.
  • Draws on the author's experiences as a legal practitioner, academic, and revolutionary activist
  • Contains a scholarly table of authorities/bibliography with cross references
