Summary
The Poetics of Fear looks at how fear is used forpolitical purposes, focusing on the binary logic of "this is the way thingsare, and there is nothing (else) you can do about it"--A logic thatunderlies the realist tradition in international relations theory. The Shield of Achilles from Homer's Iliad is used as metaphoricalanalysis to look at what the politics of fear is, how it works, and how it canbe resisted. It aims to provide a human response to human security matters. The work first shows how the Shield works to paralyze its audience. How can itbe resisted? One response is to offer a war
