Abstract

Disordered Violence looks at how gender, race and heteronormative expectations of public life shape Western understandings of terrorism as irrational, immoral and illegitimate. Caron Gentry examines the profiles of 8 well-known terrorist actors and looks at the gendered, racial, and sexualised assumptions in how their stories are told.
