In the aftermath of September 11, individuals have not ceased to ask why the United States has become the target of terrorists. But the authors of Surviving Terror: Hope and Justice in a World of Violence had already finished all of their essays by the summer of 2001 and sent them to editors Victoria Lee Erickson and Michelle Lim Jones. Their anthology is distinguished by its international cast of contributors; essayists include James Cone, Jergen Moltmann, Peter Ochs, Kosuke Koyama and Luis Rivera-Pag n. They explore terrorism in the Bible, in the Japanese occupation of Korea and in the legacy of African-American slavery, among other things. Although the book's tone is decidedly academic, it offers a substantial and timely contribution to the literature on religion and justice. (Mar.)
