'Through a combination of historical perspective on the colonial world and contemporary inquiry into the imperial enterprise, Economy of Force invites us to rethink the laws of warfare and politics of counterinsurgency by paying attention to the pacification of local populations understood as a form of domestication. It thus unveils the genealogy of the blurred line between military and humanitarian interventions.' Didier Fassin, coeditor of Contemporary States of Emergency

'More than concentration camps': the battle for hearths in two late-colonial emergencies; 6. Society itself is at war: new model pacification in Vietnam; 7.
