Terrorism : Its Global Overview, Explanation, and Prevention
Terrorism : Its Global Overview, Explanation, and
Terrorism is the systematic use of terror or unpredictable violence against governments, public or individuals to attain a political objective. It evolved from numerous attacks in the 20th century, to comparatively less frequent but more destractive assaults in the 21st century. The book does not go into any micro-level data, stating names of countries, political groups, individuals, or religions as name calling in terms of political, national, and religious affiliations does not necessarily help critical thinking. Instead, it objectively and conceptually examines the problems or issues related to serious forms of violence. It provides an impartial and objective outlook by completely avoiding any discussions in any emotionally charged manner or sensationalism. The focus is on types or forms, general impacts, explanations, and preventive measures of violence, without appeasing or insulting particular vested interests, if any. By concentrating on conceptual analysis of the terrorist phenomena, the book enables readers to look at a bigger picture , examining the issues involved, instead of resorting to incidental enumerations, etc. There is no easy understanding of a complex situation of terrorism; no easy answers to many questions puzzling us about the issue over the years; no over...

Terrorism: How the West Can Win
Terrorism: How to Respond
Terrorism: How to
Richard English argues here that the post-9/11 War on Terror has spectacularly failed and that we now need a radically new approach to dealing with international terrorism. Recent policies have ignored the lessons of the past, and Terrorism: How to Respond seeks to remedy this lack of vision by looking at the long history of terrorism and assessing why such violence emerges, how it is sustained, and--most crucially of all--how and why it ends. Written by an historian who has long studied Irish terrorism and politics, this book argues that we cannot adequately respond to the practical challenge of terrorist violence around the world unless we are more honest about the precise nature of the phenomenon, and about explaining its true and complex causes. Drawing on first-hand research into terrorist organizations, Richard English offers an authoritative and accessible analysis of arguably the most urgent political problem of the twenty-first century--and how we can successfully respond to it.
