State Violence and the Execution of Law

Professor Jospeh Pugliese researches how the institution of law was, in the waging of the War on Terror, perverted in order to legitimate, officially, a range of violent practices that contravened US law, international law and international treaty obligations. It offers a forensic analysis of how the political divide between human and animal has played a fundamental role in enabling torture, secret imprisonment and killing via drones. It demonstrates how the scripting of the victims of the War on Terror as non-human animals often resulted in their being tortured, killed and disappeared with impunity.
