Violence is usually located outside the democratic domain. Its recurrence is understood as a direct threat to democracy. Democracies are called upon to 'manage', 'tackle', or 'deal with' it, not necessarily through democratic means. Today, democracy is sought to be 'exported' across continents by waging war on countries that, according to the exporting countries of the West,are yet to become democratic. This book contests and demystifies the celebrationist understanding of democracy and argues that violence is embedded in democracy as much as democracy is embedded in violence. Their interconnected existence has only made democracy violent and violence one of the many ways of trying to make a democracy work. So, more of democracy does not necessarily mean less of violence and vice versa. Viewed in this light, this book examines the connection as organic and one of mutually spiralling nature. Democratic institutions and violence are thus implicated in an endless dialogue and confrontation. The alternative to democracy can only be a better democracy.Printed Pages: 268.
