"This well-researched and well-written book exposesthe hypocrisy and deception that lie behind the reversal of the 'no dual use' nonproliferation policy, a reversal likely to diminish long-term prospects for preventing the spread of nuclear weapons throughout the world." Rep. EdwardJ. Markey (D-MA), senior Member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee and CoChairof theBipartisan Task Force on Nonproliferation
"*Terrorism, Freedom and Security* presents a powerful argument that not only explains why declaring a 'war' on terrorism was unwise but also presents a compelling case for relying on intelligence and law enforcement rather than military force and coercion. Phil Heymann is unequivocal in his defense of democratic values as the core of an effective American national policy for preventing terrorism. His book, grounded in knowledge of American policy as well as the experiences of other countries, is an essential foundation for the public debate we must have about the costs and benefits of alternative strategies for combating terrorism."—Martha Crenshaw, Colin and Nancy Campbell Professor of Global Issues and Democratic Thought, Wesleyan University
"Philip Heymann has shown again in *Terrorism, Freedom, and Security* why he is one of the leading thinkers in the world on the subject of terrorism. In this brief but extraordinary book, he has laid out the old and the new, the problems and the pitfalls, the challenges and the opportunities. He has given us a sober and broad set of responses, but clearly pointed out that there are no silver bullets. And most importantly, he has reminded us that we must not forfeit our democratic values in defense of our democracy."—Rand Beers, former Special Assistant to thePresident and Senior Director for Combating Terrorism, National Security Council,2002-2003
"In his latest book, Philip Heymann speaks brilliantly to the issues: terrorism is not a temporary threat. As such, we must not allow terrorists to impose their agenda on American political and economic life. Professor Heymann's most compelling characterization of our national security predicament comes in his persuasive explanation that the very solutions we devise to thwart terrorism may, in the end, exacerbate an already volatile world situation."—General Barry R.
