Hardback    9788188965564


Terror, Terrorism, States and Societies is a collection of essays by international scholars, across different disciplines, discussing several aspects of terror: as historical event; as ideology; as ‘extreme violence’; and as the final marker of identity.



Terror, Terrorism, States and Societies discusses the historical and discursive relations between democracy and terror, liberalism and the rule of law, the ‘war on terror’ and the need for legitimacy; and a philosophical engagement with terror. The book’s scope ranges from the Enlightenment and the French Revolution to colonial terror, postcolonialism and the global situation post-September 11, 2001.
