One Of Us: Breivik, Oslo and the Terror in The 21st Century

En av oss

One of Us tells the story of the terror attack taking place July 22, 2011 in Norway, executed by 32-year-old Anders Behring Breivik, a man convinced that rising Muslim immigration to Europe merited an act of unthinkable violence.
Alongside Breivik’s story of childhood abuse and neglect, and the political and social context which brewed his toxic ideology, this book also tells the story of the victims of his attacks, using the tragedy as a lens to examine Norway, its people, and society at large.
