    Abstract

    The purpose of this research is to find the author world view of Iron Star novel. The objective of this research are to analyze the structures of Iron Star novel, the work of Brian Kelleher reflecting the problematic characters due to inter-character relationship, to analyze the historical background or social event of American people consolidating the birth of Iron Star novel, and to explain the Kelleher‟s world view (vision du monde) of seeing terrorism reflected on Iron Star novel. In getting to the main point of this research, the writer uses Genetic Structuralism approach which developed by Lucien Goldmann. Genetic Structuralism is an approach in literary research in which combine structural analysis and sociological analysis. The first step is by doing intrinsic analysis of the structure of the novel and relates one another to find the meaning of the novel. After that the writer elaborates the intrinsic analysis with social and historical events of author‟s society consolidating the birth of the novel to reveal the author world view. The result of this research shows that Iron star novel has flash-back plot, the problematic character named Joe Copp, setting on the USA around the end of World War II, while the theme is obeying the laws in doing war toward terrorism. The problem revealed on Iron Star novel is the sending of Nazi‟s agent to the USA to kill the President FDR. The mission was done by more practice of killing many people of America that become a terror and the residents stayed in fear. While the FBI agent, Copp tried to stop it together with breaking the FBI‟s laws and his boss explained to him that he was wrong and should obey the laws. The different point of view in seeing terrorism revealed by the author that people must keep obeying the laws that had been agreed by people, while the government of America has different view that they must do war toward terror. They often legalize themselves in do the war to other country in which the terrorists come from. They also often ignored the resolution of the World Organization that in doing that they must also pay attention to the international laws and do not ignore them. From the result above, the writer concludes that the world view of the author revealed on Iron Star novel is people must keep obeying the international laws in seeing and facing terrorism.
