  • Cloning Terrorby W. J. T. Mitchell

    University of Chicago Press 2011; US$ 22.50

    The  phrase ?War on Terror? has quietly been retired from official usage, but it persists in the American psyche, and our understanding of it is hardly complete. Nor will it be, W. J. T Mitchell argues, without a grasp of the images that it spawned, and that spawned it. Exploring the role of verbal and visual images in the War on Terror, Mitchell... more...

  • Zwischen Terrorismus und Politik - Sinn Féin im Wandelby Dominic Vogel

    Diplomica Verlag 2009; US$ 30.95

    Der Name Sinn Féin wird gemeinhin grob mit dem Nordirlandkonflikt, beziehungsweise der IRA assoziiert. Dem Fokus des Betrachters entzieht sich dabei leicht, dass die Partei Sinn Féin eine lange Entwicklung hinter sich hat. Das Prädikat "politischer Arm der IRA" umschreibt die vielen Facetten in ihrer Geschichte nur sehr unscharf. Dieses Buch zeichnet... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2011; US$ 48.95

    This book examines reason and unreason in the legal and political responses to terrorism.
