Book Review: Controlling Security in a Culture of Fear by Hildebrandt, M., Makinwa, A., and Oehmichen, A. (eds)

Published: November 2010

This edited volume discusses the late modern society that is dominated by fear and in which not just (inter)national authorities but everyone wants to control security. Five interconnected ‘red threads’ reveal themselves in the volume:

1) the risky other; 2) the vulnerability of ordinary citizens; 3) public protection; 4) the fear of fear; and 5) the study of resilience.
