Conor Cruise O’Brien collects a number of essays alongside three short plays that dramatise political arguments through the infamous figure of the Roman king of Judaea for whom the collection is named.’
‘This collection of essays and three plays is confined to a theme which has preoccupied the author over the years. It is, arguably, the single most important theme confronting the world today – the use of violence for political ends.’
