Editorial Reviews

"Slomp offers a provocative analysis of Carl Schmitt's understanding of hostility and the partisan useful for those who are just now encountering his thought and those long acquainted with it... In thinking through Schmitt's account of hostility, Slomp provides a useful category for thinking about contemporary terrorism." --CHOICE
