War as peace, peace as pacification -- War on waste, or, international law as primitive accumulation -- 'O effeminacy! effeminacy!': martial power, masculine power, liberal peace -- The police of civilisation: war as civilising offensive -- Air power as police power I -- Air power as police power II -- Under the sign of security: trauma, terror, resilience.
Why is liberalism so obsessed with waste? Is there a drone above you now? Are you living in a no-fly zone? What is the role of masculinity in the 'war on terror'? And why do so many liberals profess a love of peace while finding new ways to justify slaughter in the name of 'peace and security'? In this, the first book to deal with the concepts of war power and police power together, Mark Neocleous deals with these questions and many more by radically rethinking the relationship between war power and police power.
