Praise

“Carola Dietze is a fascinating storyteller. This is historical prose at its best. Despite the wealth of footnotes and source references, this book is a real pageturner.”
—Paul Stänner, Deutschlandfunk

“The story of tragic heroes, conspiracies, and how they resonant in the media that Dietze unfolds to elucidate her argument is not only enlightening—it is also entertaining for readers.”
—Lea Haller, Neue Zürcher Zeitung

“This book may well revolutionize our understanding of the origins of terrorism in the 19th century. In highly original fashion, it closely links together the actions of terrorists in France, Russia, and the United States and shows how between 1858 and 1866 two key terrorists influenced three copycats who altogether ignited the explosion of modern terrorism. The depth of Dietze’s research, drawing upon archives not only in Europe and the United States, but also in Russia, is staggering. A must read for anyone interested in the history of terrorism.”
Richard Bach Jensen, Louisiana Scholars’ College at Northwestern State University, author of The Battle Against Anarchist Terrorism
