Case Study: Soviet Prisoners-of-War (POWs), 1941-42 (Paper)

Crossing the Border Between Law and Sovereignty (Chapter 5 of Sacred Violence)
  “The sovereign is born in a sacrificial shedding of blood that marks a new appearance of the sacred.”
Evil and European Humanism (Paper)
  “One of the great puzzles of the West is to understand how culture has been tied to practices of evil. One view is that evil arises from the failure of culture – as if the civilizing forces have not been quite strong enough to overcome the brutish state of nature. The opposite view is that nature is innocent and that evil is the product of culture itself.”
Imagining Warfare (Article)
Law and Theology (Paper)
Philosophy and the Politics of Unreason (Paper)
  “Regardless of its position on health care, the state is also an institution willing to deploy violence, death, and destruction. Our national narrative is organized around killing and being killed, at least as much as it is around the lowering of mortality rates or increasing gross domestic product.”
