Book Review, Issue 19
- Monthly Issue Featuring Special Book Reviews about Terrorism.
Among the bedrock priorities of research to well understand the underlying reality and draw definitive conclusions that display the specificity of feminist terrorism are analyzing terrorism based on the assumptions of the feminist movement theory, and clarifying the relationship existing between the feminist movement and the security challenges of counterterrorism. Feminist Perspectives on Terrorism: Critical Approaches to Security Studies discusses and addresses terrorism as a manifestation of extremist political violence carried out by individuals, groups, and governments for centuries aimed at achieving political or ideological agendas; it is thus intentionally perpetrated to instill intense fear and hold sway on society. In this context, Dr. Aleksandra Gasztold seeks to examine the fact that women are involved in terrorism in theory and practice, including the size of their direct contribution to terrorist operations, and the detailed nature of such participation in our time. The said book falls into six chapters, featuring an introduction and a conclusion.
