Chapter Summary

This index of the book Phenomenologies of Violence presents a list of terms and concepts relevant to the study of an exploration into the many faces of violence. The book traces the theme of violence throughout Hannah Arendt's political writings such as The Human Condition and On Revolution where she draws connections between war, violence, and necessity; The Origins of Totalitarianism where she examines Europe's uses of violence in camps, as well as massacre and imperialism in Africa; and On Violence where she condemns the violence of the Black Power movement and anti-colonialism.

Keywords: Hannah Arendt's political writings; violence
