Just Assassins examines terrorism as it's manifested in Russian culture past and present, with essays devoted to Russian literature, film, and theatre; historical narrative; and even amateur memoir, songs, and poetry posted on the Internet. Along with editor Anthony Anemone's introduction, these essays chart the evolution of modern political terrorism in Russia, from the Decembrist uprising to the horrific school siege in Beslan in 2004, showing how Russia's cultural engagement with its legacy of terrorism speaks to the wider world.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"There is not a weak chapter in the bunch. The book is recommended for all scholars and library collections interested in terrorism, Russian history, and literary studies."
--Slavic Review

"Terrorism is both immediately relevant and recurringly important in the life of Russian society. The baker's dozen of essays collected in Just Assassins (together with an introduction by Anthony Anemone and afterword by Nina L. Khrushcheva) make a distinctly worthwhile contribution to the growing body of literature devoted to the peculiarly Russian manifestations of this phenomenon."
--The Slavic and East European Journal
