Summary
Scholars from a variety of fields - political science, philosophy, law, and others - provide answers to the question: What does Batman have to do with politics? Contributors use the Batman canon, from the comics to the feature films, to explore a broad range of issues in politics and political thought. What can Batman's role in Gotham City teach us about democracy? How do Batman?s vigilantism and his violence fit within a society committed to the rule of law? What?s the relationship between politics in Gotham and politics in our own communities? From Machiavelli to the fake news phenomenon, this book provides a compelling introduction to the politics behind one of the world?s most enduring pop culture figures
