Summary "In this book artists and arts theorists explore the various ways in which art can help articulate the zone of grey that lies behind the black and white term 'terrorism'. The images and texts in this volume also tackle a growing awareness that the ill-defined 'war on terror' which has followed in the wake of 11 September 2001 is accompanied by a politics of fear. One of the sub-themes in this book is the impact of this atmosphere on the plight of asylum seekers. And one can also note that the politics of fear threatens the freedom of expression which is so important to art in a democratic society."--BOOK JACKET
