From the Back Cover
'Terror and Taboo' examines the complicity of governments, the media, the arts, academia, and violent activists themselves in constituting 'terrorism' as a substitute for genuine political debate. The authors draw upon the lessons and perspectives afforded terrorism literature, social anthropology, and their own field work with Basque violence to question the very validity and utility of the entire concept of terrorism.
