Reviews

Brute Reality offers an original, incisive and elegantly written analysis of contemporary warfare, rhetoric and power. Stuart Price argues that changes in the leadership of belligerent states will not prevent the consolidation of the western 'security regime'. This powerful structure is not a 'threat' to modern democracy, but expresses instead the values that lie at its core. -- Karen Ross, Professor of Media and Public Communication, University of Liverpool This timely and important book dismantles the myths of the war on terror and demonstrates how the rhetoric of terror provides a pretext for the consolidation of state security and the expansion of military power. Brute Reality is essential reading for anyone with an interest in the politics of war, violence and power in the twenty-first century. -- Stephen Morton, University of Southampton
