Book by Moran Mary H


"Moran's elegant and passionate study of the violence inherent in democracy represents an important contribution to the anthropological project of interrogating the categorical distinction between 'war' and 'peace.'"--Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute "Drawing on the author's ethnographic fieldwork in a Glebo community outside Harper, Liberia in the early 1980s, and her continued contact with Liberians in West Africa and in the diaspora, Liberia: The Violence of Democracy takes aim at the popular and scholarly tendency to treat violence and representative democracy as polar opposites...Moran offers a compelling Africanist case study to be read in conjunction with the Europeanist political philosophy of thinkers like Jacques Ranciere or Giorgio Agamben. This is, however, an extremely accessible book, and its greatest contribution may come if and when it is picked up by policymakers and the staff of international NGOs."--Journal of Contemporary African Studies
