War Power, Police Power

First Edition

Mark Neocleous

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • 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'
  • Thinks critically about how powers of war and powers of police coincide in the exercise of state violence and social ordering
  • 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
