Reviews

"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."  ï¿½The Slavic and East European Journal
