Reflections on Violence

by

Reflections on Violence Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this controversial text, Sorel, a noted revolutionary, voices his belief in class warfare as a means of effecting lasting social change. His searching inquiry extends to the functions of violence, the sources of political power, the weapons of revolution, and the role of myths in converting and motivating people.

Book News Annotation:

In a work first published as a series of articles in Mouvement Socialiste from January to June of 1908, revolutionary socialist syndicalist Sorel (1847-1922) considers a range of questions concerning the causes and justifications of political violence. He discusses the use of violence and force by revolutionary movements by revolutionary movements and the state, examines the violence of economic and political strikes, and constructs an ethics of violence. Rejecting bourgeois moral condemnations of proletarian violence, the work as a whole is a call for uncompromising class war and the socialist overthrow of capitalism. This is a paperbound edition of a work first published in 1950.
