By Anna Bennett

The strength Paradox: A Toolkit for interpreting clash and Extremism unearths how mainstream perspectives of energy limit the conceptual insights had to unravel clash. Anna Bennett insightfully explores Michel Foucault’s paintings on energy and discourse as a way to improve conceptual and contextual instruments for realizing energy dynamics. via an exam of a number extremist, terrorist, and counter-terrorist rhetoric, in addition to a number of theories of strength, Bennett analyzes the frequent difficulties linked to assuming that strength is barely repressive and aggressive. This constrained view reinforces — frequently unwittingly — divisive dynamics and obdurate polemics, which serve to proceed clash. by means of providing a complete and confident view of energy struggles, The energy Paradox argues that energy is a relational dynamic. Bennett identifies attention-grabbing contradictions inside of discourses of energy and relational dynamics, acknowledging the iconic drawback of energy struggles: we're all implicated inside of them.
