Summary

Urban Fears and Global Terrors After 7/7 explores the disruption around that day, taking people back to the events and the sense of loss, fear and mourning that followed. By framing a new landscape of urban fear Victor Seidler shows how new technologies helped to shape responses to a global terror that had been anticipated but was dreadful in its reality. By listening to the narratives people shaped for themselves Seidler shows the need for new forms of social theory that can come to terms with the contemporary realities of urban fear, complex identities and belongings. This book:

  • explores the relationship of Islam to the West and ways in which this has been forgotten within traditional forms of social theory
  • engages with a crisis of masculinities and the particular histories of migration and diaspora from the sub-continent
  • follows the discussions around citizenship, identity and difference and the possibilities of belonging that were being fought out through different visions of multi-culture and integration that followed.

This book will prove an incredibly useful resource for students and researchers of Political Sociology and Citizenship, Diaspora Studies, Terrorism and Political Violence, Cultural Theory, Ethics and Philosophy.
