Since 11 September 2001, the War on Terror has dominated global political life. Times of Terror takes a critical look at the different ways in which the George W. Bush administration created and justified this far-reaching conflict through their use of language and other discursive practices. It becomes clear that representations of time were central in presenting this war as a necessary, legitimate and coherent response to the events of 9/11. Moreover, by exploring these representations, a space is opened for a rethinking the politics of identity, violence and time beyond this particular context.
