Analyzing the different frames through which we experience war, Butler calls for a reorientation of the Left
In this urgent response to violence, racism and increasingly aggressive methods of coercion, Judith Butler explores the media’s portrayal of armed conflict, a process integral to how the West prosecutes its wars. In doing so, she calls for a reconceptualization of the left, one united in opposition and resistance to the illegitimate and arbitrary effects of interventionist military action.


“A trenchant and brilliant book.”

“It's clear that its author is still interested in stirring up trouble—academic, political and otherwise.”

“Judith Butler is quite simply one of the most probing, challenging, and influential thinkers of our time.”

“Judith Butler is the most creative and courageous social theorist writing today. Frames of War is an intellectual masterpiece that weds a new understanding of being, immersed in history, to a novel Left politics that focuses on State violence, war and resistance.”

“An impressive and challenging book from one of the leading intellectuals of our time.”
