Terror, Counter-Terror: Women Speak Out

Ammu Joseph (Editor) Kalpana Sharma (Editor)
Synopsis Terror is a matter of fact. Globally. Long before the attacks on the World Trade Center on September, 11, 2001, large parts of the world had lived with and resisted terrorisms that often masqueraded as liberation struggles: Sri Lanka, Bosnia, Rwanda, Northern Ireland, Algeria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Palestine/Israel… Women across the world have spoken out against terrorism, militarism and violence of all kinds as an unacceptable strategy for resolving differences and conflict. As women, they have spoken from an experience of all three that is both personal and political, and have analysed the links between aggressive masculinity, fundamentalism, war, global capitalism, politicized religion and ethnic nationalism. This anthology, ranging over the last decade, is a powerful statement against all terrorism, as well as any counter-terrorism that uses the same violence to deal with it.
