    Sing the Rage: Listening to Anger After Mass Violence.Sonali Chakravarti - 2014 - University of Chicago Press.
    What is the relationship between anger and justice, especially when so much of our moral education has taught us to value the impartial spectator, the cold distance of reason? In _Sing the Rage_, Sonali Chakravarti wrestles with this question through a careful look at the emotionally charged South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission, which from 1996 to 1998 saw, day after day, individuals taking the stand to speak—to cry, scream, and wail—about the atrocities of apartheid. Uncomfortable and surprising, these public (...)

The ambition of the editors was to mark this half century not with a retrospective but with a confabulation of futures. Contributors were asked: What will political theory look and sound like in the next century and beyond?

    Wanted: Angela Davis and a Jury of Her Peers.Sonali Chakravarti - 2021 - Political Theory 49 (3):380-402.
    In 1972 Angela Davis stood trial on charges of conspiracy, kidnapping, and murder before a White jury. A professor of philosophy, a Communist, and a member of the Black Panther Party, she had no reason to believe that any of the jurors were her peers.

Through an analysis of the case, this essay argues for a new approach to peerhood that defines it as (...)
