    Item Type: Book Section ISBN: , Academic Unit/School: Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) > Social Sciences and Global Studies.   For the terrorism risk to border on becoming “unacceptable” by established risk conventions — that is, to reach an annual fatality rate of 1 in , — the number of fatalities from all forms of terrorism in the United States would have to increase fold, and in Australia more than fold.

      War on terrorism, term used to describe the American-led global counterterrorism campaign launched in response to the Septem , attacks. In its scope, expenditure, and impact on international relations, it was comparable to the Cold War, and it represented a new phase in global political relations. Specifically, this book brings to light and theorizes the obscene pleasures of the ‘War on Terror’ and its supplementary precautionary risk logic. Coming to grips with this (i.e., the pleasures of risk), ultimately via an engagement with critical psychoanalytic theory, leads this book to argue that we may be other than we think we are.
