The Management of Savagery

book | Non-Fiction | Mar 2019
World English → Verso (Ed. Leo Hollis)

The Management of Savagery is the first journalistic and historical survey of the parallel rise of international jihadism and Western ultra-nationalism. This book examines extremist forces not simply as the root of this self-feeding crisis, but as the inevitable result of a national security state supported by bipartisan consensus throughout the West.

Blending field reporting, original investigative journalism, and contextual analysis, The Management of Savagery is an intervention in its own right -- on behalf of those struggling to understand the causes of the crisis ripping at the fabric of their societies and against the demagogues exploiting it in order to widen the rift.
