about

This book engages with the most urgent philosophical questions pertaining to the problem of terrorism. What is terrorism? Could it ever be justified? Assuming that terrorism is just one of many kinds of political violence, the book denies that it is necessarily wrong and worse than war. In fact, it may be justifiable under certain circumstances.
ANNE SCHWENKENBECHER Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Department of Philosophy at the University of Vienna, Austria. She has held positions at Potsdam University and at the Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics at Australian National University, Canberra.
