Hosna Bint Mahmoud:
Novelist Hari Kunzru explores the literary dimensions of the Edwardian anarchist scare, exploring the strange times 100 years ago, when Britain was both fighting and imagining a terrorist threat against shadowy figures who wanted to do away with the state itself. The idea gave rise to a ferment of fictional creativity - and a secret police response that could be just as creative. The most famous book it inspired was Conrad's The Secret Agent, but there were many other now-forgotten anarchist scare novels with eerily modern images of anarchists in airships flattening London.
