Summary:
Since 9/11, we have been told that terrorists are pathological evildoers. Yet before the 1970s, hijackings, assassinations, and other acts now called 'terrorism' were considered the work of rational actors. 'Disciplining Terror' explains how political violence became 'terrorism', and how this transformation ultimately led to the current 'war on terror'.
