    Critique of Violence: Between Poststructuralism and Critical Theory.Beatrice Hanssen - 2000 - Routledge.
    _Critique of Violence_ is a highly original and lucid investigation of the heated controversy between poststructuralism and critical theory.

    The turn to ethics.Marjorie B. Garber, Beatrice Hanssen & Rebecca L. Walkowitz (eds.) - 2000 - New York: Routledge.
