Derek Gregory and Allan Pred's "Spaces of Terror" is critical geography's rejoinder to "The Geographical Dimensions of Terrorism", which came from geography's mainstream establishment. Gregory and Pred, both eminent in their field, have brought together a talented group of geographers, both young and well established, to look at how territory and space delimits and shapes both terrorism and political violence in wide range of places.
The overreaching goal of this work is to show how political violence, especially terrorism, 'ruptures the simple distinction between "the global" and the "local" by folding transnational geopolitical strategies into the intimacies of everyday life'. It goes far beyond 9/11, moving backward in history and across the globe to investigate the heightened states of emergency occurring around the world.
