This book explores how different publics make sense of and evaluate anti-terrorism powers within the UK, and the implications of this for citizenship and security. Drawing on primary empirical research, the book argues that whilst white individuals are not unconcerned about the effects of anti-terrorism, ethnic minority citizens (including, but not only those identifying as Muslim) believe that anti-terrorism powers have impacted negatively on their citizenship and security. This book thus offers the first systematic engagement with 'vernacular' or 'everyday' understandings of anti-terrorism policy, citizenship and security. It argues that while transformations in anti-terrorism frameworks impact on public experiences of security and citizenship, they do not do so in a uniform, homogeneous, or predictable manner. At the same time, public understandings and expectations of security and citizenship themselves shape how developments in anti-terrorism frameworks are discussed and evaluated. This important new book will be of interest to researchers and students working in a wide range of disciplines including Political Science, International Relations, Security Studies and Sociology.

'A nuanced and sophisticated analysis of a very important subject.'
Ronald Crelinsten, author of Counterterrorism (Polity Press), Associate Fellow, Centre for Global Studies, University of Victoria, Canada

'A thoughtful scholarly work that puts citizens at the heart of anti-terrorism law and policy in a way that enhances our understanding and delivers a sharp critical edge.'
Conor Gearty, Director of the Institute of Public Affairs, London School of Economics and Political Science

'Jarvis and Lister are able to explain why post-9/11 security policy has left many UK citizens feeling less secure and less like citizens of their own country. This troubling conclusion is of urgent relevance to policymakers, to journalists and to citizens themselves.'
Ben O'Loughlin, Professor of International Relations, Royal Holloway, University of London
