This volume aims to ‘bring the state back into terrorism studies’ and fill the notable gap that currently exists in our understanding of the ways in which states employ terrorism as a political strategy of internal governance or foreign policy.

Within this broader context, the volume has a number of specific aims. First, it aims to make the argument that state terrorism is a valid and analytically useful concept which can do much to illuminate our understanding of state repression and governance, and illustrate the varieties of actors, modalities, aims, forms, and outcomes of this form of contemporary political violence. Secondly, by discussing a rich and diverse set of empirical case studies of contemporary state terrorism this volume explores and tests theoretical notions, generates new questions and provides a resource for further research. Thirdly, it contributes to a critical-normative approach to the study of terrorism more broadly and challenges dominant approaches and perspectives which assume that states, particularly Western states, are primarily victims and not perpetrators of terrorism. Given the scarceness of current and past research on state terrorism, this volume will make a genuine contribution to the wider field, particularly in terms of ongoing efforts to generate more critical approaches to the study of political terrorism.

This book will be of much interest to students of critical terrorism studies, critical security studies, terrorism and political violence and political theory in general.

Review:

'The value of this collection lies in the fact that it goes further than simply charting state-perpetrated harms and denouncing them as examples of state terror. It also provides a robust analytical and comparative framework within which the phenomenon of state terrorism can be defined, conceptualized and addressed.' - Nesam McMillan, State Crime, 2012

'...this is an important and challenging book that addresses fundamental issues of state practice. The authors develop arguments that are both compelling and subtle. While the book adds to the wider literature on state crime and will be valuable to those teaching across a range of disciplines, it also provides a solid platform for future criminological research.' - Michael Grewcock, The Australian and New Zealand Journal of Criminology
