'...vibrant and vital collection...' - Theatre Research International

'Violence Performed is an important contribution to studies of violence in political contexts worldwide' - Lynette Hunter, Professor of the History of Rhetoric and Performance, UC Davis, USA

'Violence Performed is more than a collection of essays: it is a call to critical arms for all scholars in theatre and performance studies engaged with the challenges of bearing witness to global violence, and to the violence of the "global" as a constitutive discourse of late modernity. Anderson and Menon ask us to explore not only the places and performances of cultural and political trauma, but also the larger ethical questions that attend our work on trauma "elsewhere". What are the politics of performing violence? Of writing about violence performed? These are the urgent questions at the heart of this valuable book.'- Kim Solga, Associate Professor of English, University of Western Ontario, Canada

'Few works balance the theoretical charge of their arguments with such powerful contempoary examples. Given that the emphasis is on the performative aspects of violence, the editors do a terrifc work of examining not merely the staged (which assumes social and political actors) but also the spectacular (that which assumes rapid dissemination and disruption of the social) dimensions of public violence.' - Aishwary Kumar, Assistant Professor of Modern South Asian History, Stanford University, USA
