(p.241) The Force of Imagination
Binding Violence
Stanford University Press

This chapter summarizes the preceding discussions and presents some final thoughts. The analysis in this book was based on the premise that the literary text can open visionary doors to reveal what other social discourses may not yet have articulated. There is much writing about the violence inscribed in the circle of domination—the circle whereby violence creates, enforces, and contests laws. That circle of violence is mediated by rituals, symbolic nets, institutions, and the institutional game of power relations. The chapter also considers the crises of membership brought about by the phenomena of globalization.

Keywords:   violence, domination, globalization, rituals, power relations
