Edited by Stephen Hessel and Michèle Huppert
What are fear, horror, and terror? This question, central to our endeavour, cannot be answered by one unified voice. It always cracks, falters, and fades before it can fully enunciate its proclamation. We, the authors, know this and have planned accordingly.
This volume presents meditations on this issue springing from the four corners of intellectual inquiry. Each author provides a distinctive approach with which to address the issue at hand. Literary theory, psychoanalysis, media studies, political science, and many more disciplines occupy the same space between the covers of this book. We hope that through the cacophony of our diversity we will fill in the inevitable gaps when our voices fall short.
