Description

Carl Schmitt is one of the most contentious political theorists of the 20th century. His complicity in Nazi Germany left him discredited yet he has continued to attract widespread attention as an insightful, if flawed, critic of the modern world and global ambitions. Essays in this volume explore related aspects of Schmitt's arguments against intervention, concepts about the enemy, occupation, etc.
