While 9/11 led to a mushrooming of academic and media output on terrorism, attention has often centred on the perpetrators of violence and their supporters, whereas analysis of the victims and survivors of attacks has been comparatively neglected. This collection aims to redress this balance. Bringing together experts from a wide variety of disciplines including Psychology, Law, Public Health and International Relations, the volume provides an extensive examination of terrorist victimisation. Adopting a holistic approach to victimisation, this collection focuses not only on the psychological impact of victimisation but also critically engages with issues such as the social construction of the term, the public needs that derive from the status of victim of terrorism, the legal debates that surround the state's response to victimhood and the neglect of victims of counter-terrorism and state terror. The different contributions construct a comprehensive picture of how individual and public experiences of victimisation are constructed and how they are shaped by existing dynamics of violence either from sub-national terrorism or controversial counter-terror responses. Enhancing our understanding of the phenomenon of terrorist victimisation, this volume will be a valuable resource to scholars in Politics, Criminology, Terrorism and Counter-Terrorism.Martin-PeApa, J., Opotow, S. and RodrAsguez-Carballeira, A.
