I’m only a few pages into International Politics and Zombies, I’m already a fan. Mainly because the author comes across as smart, and with a sense of humour.
When Thomas Hobbes described the state of nature as one of “continuall feare, and danger of violent death, and the life of man solitary, poore, nasty, brutish and short,” zombies were either on his mind or outside his door.
UPDATE: And when he’s talking about neoconservatism:
Indeed, one concern would be that the initial neoconservative response to a zombie outbreak would be to invade Iraq again out of force of habit.
