Just Assassins : The Culture of Terrorism in Russia Hardback


Just Assassins examines terrorism as it's manifested in Russian culture past and present, with essays devoted to Russian literature, film, and theatre; historical narrative; and even amateur memoir, songs, and poetry posted on the Internet.

Along with editor Anthony Anemone's introduction, these essays chart the evolution of modern political terrorism in Russia, from the Decembrist uprising to the horrific school siege in Beslan in 2004, showing how Russia's cultural engagement with its legacy of terrorism speaks to the wider world.
