Summary
In this book, Donatella Di Cesare argues that terrorism is not an aberration but intrinsic to the struggle for sovereignty in the modern world. The growing concentration of power in the hands of the state sows the seeds of terrorism, deployed as a weapon by those exposed to the violence of the state that feel they have no other recourse. --
