Terrorismus, so die Grundthese dieses Bandes, ist ein kommunikativer Akt. Die Gewalt ist kein Selbstzweck, sondern soll Botschaften transportieren und maximale Aufmerksamkeit erzielen. Die Beiträge des Bandes untersuchen die kommunikative Verflechtung terroristischer Gewalt mit staatlichem Handeln und der Mediengesellschaft. Analysiert werden Attentate im Russland und Frankreich des 19. ebenso wie der irische und baskische Terrorismus des frühen 20. Jahrhunderts oder die Roten Brigaden und die RAF. Dabei wird deutlich, dass gerade die Kommunikation zwischen Terroristen, Staat und Öffentlichkeit auch Chancen zur Deeskalation bietet.

It is, of course, no secret that undercover Special Forces and intelligence agencies operated in Northern Ireland and the Republic throughout the ‘troubles’, from 1969 to 2001 and beyond. What is less well known is how these units were recruited, how they operated, what their mandate was and what they actually did. This is the first account to reveal much of this hitherto unpublished information, providing a truly unique record of surveillance, reconnaissance, intelligence gathering, collusion and undercover combat. An astonishing number of agencies were active to combat the IRA murder squads (‘the Provos’), among others the Military Reaction Force (MRF) and the Special Reconnaissance Unit, also known as the 14 Field Security and Intelligence Company (‘The Det’), as well as MI5, Special Branch, the RUC, the UDR and the Force Research Unit (FRU), later the Joint Support Group (JSG)). It deals with still contentious and challenging issues as shoot-to-kill, murder squads, the Disappeared, and collusion with loyalists. It examines the findings of the Stevens, Cassel and De Silva reports and looks at operations Loughgall, Andersonstown, Gibraltar and others.

For in that sleep of death what dreams may come? The end of life has never meant the extinction of hope. People perpetually have yearned for, and often been terrified by, continuance beyond the horizon of mortality. Ranging across time and space, Philip Almond here takes his readers on a remarkable journey to worlds both of torment and delight. He travels to the banks of the Styx, where Charon the grizzled boatman ferries a departing spirit across the river only if a gold obol is first placed for payment on the tongue of its corpse. He transports us to the legendary Isles of the Blessed, walks the hallowed ground of the Elysian Fields and plumbs the murky depths of Tartarus, primordial dungeon of the Titans. The pitiable souls of the damned are seen to clog the soot-filled caverns of Lucifer even as the elect ascend to Paradise. Including medieval fears for the fate of those consumed by cannibals, early modern ideas about the Last Day and modern scientific explorations of the domains of the dead, this first full treatment of the afterlife in Western thought evokes many rich imaginings of Heaven, Hell, Purgatory and Limb

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2018 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Peace and Conflict Studies, Security, grade: 8,0, University of Groningen, language: English, abstract: This paper underlines the importance of an incorporation of visual methodology into the study of transitional justice. It makes an argument for that through the assessment of visual displays on the peace walls as commemoration space in Northern Ireland, relating the reflections of the local transitional justice process to reconciliation in the country. Transitional justice uses a combination of judicial and non-judicial means to achieve its goal. Typically, there are five tools that can be used in a transitional justice process. They include institutional reform, truth, reparations, amnesties or prosecutions and reconciliation. While all can be important, tools are usually tailored individually for different transitional societies. While this paper underlines the importance of an incorporation of visual methodology into the study of transitional justice and makes an argument for that through the assessment of the peace walls as commemoration space in Northern Ireland, it can only be a starting point. Studying reconciliation through the visual analysis of space in transitional societies can be an important tool for transitional justice and this paper makes an argument for more integration of it into the field.

Is terrorism ever morally justified? Should we take historical and cultural factors into account in judging the morality of terrorist acts? What are the ethical limits of state counter-terrorism? For three decades the Provisional Irish Republican Army waged an "armed struggle" against what it perceived to be the British occupation of Northern Ireland. To its supporters, the IRA was the legitimate army of Ireland, fighting for a British withdrawal as a prelude to the reunification of the Irish nation. To its enemies, the IRA was an illegal, fanatical terrorist organization whose members were criminals sacrificing innocent lives in pursuit of an ideological obsession. At the center of this conflict were the then unconventional tactics employed by the IRA, including sectarian killings, political assassinations, and bombings of urban centres& -acts that have become increasingly commonplace in our post-9/11 world. This book is the first detailed philosophical examination of the morality of the IRA's violent campaign and the British government's attempts to end it. Students and scholars who wish to acquire a deeper understanding of a paradigmatic conflict of the late twentieth century will find a wealth of information in this provocative inquiry.
