Philosophy of Nonviolence
Revolution, Constitutionalism, and Justice beyond the Middle East
Chibli Mallat
Considers the scope of the Middle East Revolution through the different inter-connected perspectives of nonviolence theory, constitutionalism, and post-dictatorship justice
Focuses on the unique nexus of philosophy and revolution by exploring the close interaction between mass-based nonviolence, and the demands for accountability that inspired the revolution
Maintains thoroughly abstract and philosophical arguments while substantiating those arguments in historical context
Provides an interdisciplinary analysis embodying philosophy, law, history, political science, and international relations
Offers a mix of analytical, thorough research, and practical measures that derive from and inform the theory
Includes a scholarly array of legal, philosophical, and religious treatises and documents from Hammurabi to ongoing international criminal law.
Draws on the author's experiences as a legal practitioner, academic, and revolutionary activist
Contains a scholarly table of authorities/bibliography with cross references
