This book is an introduction to critical approaches to terrorism studies. Introducing students to important developments in the critical study of terrorism, the book has three key themes: (1) the position of critical terrorism studies within the discipline of International Relations (IR); (2) theoretical and methodological elaborations of critical approaches to the study of terrorism; (3) empirical illustrations of those approaches. The book's objective is to present a diverse and useful set of readings for students interested in studying terrorism through a critical lens. Mainstream books on terrorism provide little or no information about the new critical approaches, and this books aims to fill that vacuum. It provides material that students and teachers can use to begin learning the diverse ways to critically and rigorously study terrorism. At the same time, each chapter will have empirical examples that illustrate how each of these methodologies has been applied in practice. In sum, the book reviews a series of non-variable based methodological approaches and it provides empirical examples that illustrate how these approaches have been and can be utilized by students, teachers, and postgraduate researchers alike. This book will be of much interest to students of EU studies, sociology, critical security studies, and IR in general.
