Is the cultural impact of terrorism on the modern world shaped primarily through the media? Is terrorism's violence essentially symbolic? Looking at 100 years of terrorism in print - from Conrad on Anarchism in the 1880s to Seamus Heaney and Ciaran Carson on the 'Troubles' in the 1980s - Terrorism and Modern Literature offers a fresh perspective on terrorism's cultural aftermath. In this first extensive study of the phenomenon, Alex Houen explores the historical and political dimensions of writing terrorism in the modern world.
