In three taut essays, Kristian Williams examines our society's understanding of social and political violence, what gets romanticized, misunderstood, or muddled. He explores the complex intersections between "gangs" of all sorts--cops and criminals, Proud Boys and antifa, Panthers and skinheads--arguing that government and criminality are intimately related, often sharing critical features. As society becomes more polarized and the conviction that things are only going to get worse, and more violent, grows, William's analysis is a crucial corrective to our simple, unquestioned ideas about the role violence might or should play in our social struggles.
