We live in a time of terror where the war has come right to our doorstops. Thus, it was interesting to read this collection of essays which looks at the hydra of terror as a lived experience whether in its real or literary form. Divided into three parts, many of the essays in this book were engaging though a few made difficult reading. The essay on Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay in which the writer discusses the prisons as spaces of exception made for some gripping reading as did Peter Heeh’s essay on the growth of the revolutionary movement in British Bengal.
First Line: Terror, postcolonial or otherwise, induces affect, as a number of essays in this book describe.

Neer, I'm curious about Peter Heeh's essay on \”the growth of the revolutionary movement in British Bengal.\” There is just so much pre-independence history in that place and time.
This sounds really interesting, Neeru. And I especially like that the essays come from different people and different perspectives.
Oh that's very interesting Prashant. Bengal was a real revolutionary hub.
The different perspectives are what I enjoyed too Margot.
