Unlike other studies which have focused mainly on the response to the 9/11 attacks in writing from the United States, Topologies of Fear in Contemporary Fiction is global and comparative in its approach. It emphasizes the depiction in twentieth-century fiction of the transnational character of terrorism and counterterrorism throughout the 20th century, rather than only the response to the 9/11 attacks. The book examines what critical tools are available from contemporary literary theory and critical legal studies to develop what the book calls 'anti-terror discourse critique.' This is an important text for scholars and students of literature, cultural studies, studies of media and visual culture, and critical legal philosophy.
