About the book:

Vigilante movements and ideologies are spreading throughout the world, from Northern Ireland to West Africa, from Bombay to Moscow. Whether monitoring local crime and other forms of social behavior or surveying larger operations of drug trafficking and terrorism, vigilantes patrol the real and imagined political boundaries of our increasingly globalizing world. Global Vigilantes is the first book to offer a comprehensive overview of contemporary vigilantism and its relationship to different members of society and state authorities. The volume describes vigilantes' historical antecedents and explores the production and reproduction of vigilantism within shifting climates of hate and fear. It also addresses the cults and cultures of conflict associated with vigilantism and the modes, meanings, and methods of vigilante violence.
