Karrin Hanshew

Karrin Hanshew’s book on West German terrorism, “Terror and Democracy in West Germany”, appeared out this August with Cambridge University Press. The book examines West Germans’ struggle to negotiate the relationship between security and civil liberties in the 1970s, when “urban guerrillas” and the shadow of Nazi dictatorship terrorized the population and resurrected long-standing doubts regarding democracy’s ability to defend itself.
