Description :
Focusing on the activities of Tehrik-e-Taliban in the Swat Valley, Pakistan, this article argues that organized political violence is not only about death and destruction but also, about the control of the public sphere, and vitally, the reorganization of space. It argues that the movement’s spectacular violence eliminates “worldliness”, plurality and life, so that spontaneous action is denied and the public sphere is destroyed through the universalization of terror. It concludes that productive measures to resist violence should protect the performance of politics in an extended public sphere.
