Product Overview

Democracy is Promoted in religious terms to such an extent that it has become sacrosanct in Western political theory. Adrian Little argues that such piety relies on unsophisticated political analysis that pays scant attention to the complex conditions of contemporary politics. Little contends that the importance of conflict is underplayed in much of democratic theory and that it is more useful instead to think in terms of the centrality of political disagreement and its propensity to generate political violence. This argument is then exemplified by examining the ways in which democracy and violence have been conceptualized in the war on terrorism.
