Susan Hirsch has turned experience into a powerful book, one fully engaged with her experience of grief and loss but equally so with analysis of these questions of justice, and with how the pursuit of justice interacted with her status as a victim, a survivor, a widow, an anthropologist.

Princeton, NJ, and Oxford, United Kingdom: Princeton University Press, 2006. Her sympathies and originally unqualified identification with the bombing victims and their families undergo a subtle shift as she recoils from calls for vengeance and follows through on her husband's Islamic philosophy of "patience at the moment of greatest calamity. In fact, the book may be summed up as Hirsch's effort to prove her love and respect for Jamal as well as her faith in justice by showing "patience"-an obstinate will to reason out the why's and wherefore's of the bombing through critical inquiry.

Susan Hirsch's new book "In the Moment of Greatest Calamity: Terrorism, Grief, and a Victim's Quest for Justice" is a unique and vital introspection into the role justice can play in coping with political violence. Written from the authoratative position of being a participant in one moment of greatest calamity, while simultaneously focusing an analytical eye towards the legal anthropology this moment creates the book provides a remarkable blend of what social scientists often call the subjective and objective approaches to understanding social reality. Hirsch does a comendable job of weaving her personal story of loss together with insightful and honest analysis of what justice means in the aftermath of such calamity. Teasing out the distinctions of justice as determined by past culpability for actions AND by future projections of the good, Hisrch's work is an accessible read for both scholar and lay alike. This is a book that you will find hard to put down! If you are not captured by her story, then her analytical scholarship will surely draw you in.
