This book explores the dynamics of excessive violence, using a broad range of interdisciplinary case studies. It highlights that excessive violence depends on various contingencies and is not always the outcome of rational decision making. The contributors also analyse the discursive framing of acts of excessive violence.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The essays of Framing Excessive Violence are timely, helping readers make sense of the (seemingly) unfamiliar violence of 2016. And the paradox that the volume identifies - that excessive violence transgresses social and moral codes and yet eventually becomes tamed by them - is provocative and worth further exploration." (Jared Del Rosso, Criminal Law and Criminal Justice Books, clcjbooks.rutgers.edu, January, 2017)
