About this product
- DescriptionNon-lethal weapons take many forms, including electro-shock devices, rubber bullets, and long-range acoustic devices. For years, activists have questioned the use of these weapons both in the policing of domestic disturbances and the handling of international hostilities. But proponents have argued that they are ethical, legal, and humane. Although questions have been raised about whether these weapons are, in fact, n-lethal, until w scholars have paid little attention to how the actual concept of n-lethality came to be socially acceptable. In Disarming Intervention, Seantel Anais unpacks these issues, tracing the social, historical, and legal legitimization of n-lethality in the United States.
