Overview

"The post-9/11 War on Terror has spectacularly failed. This book argues that we now need a radically new approach to dealing with the international terrorist threat. Recent policies have ignored the lessons of the past. Terrorism: How to Respond seeks to remedy this lack of vision by looking at the long history of terrorism." Drawing lessons from the whole spectrum of terrorist violence, from the IRA, ETA, and the German Red Army Faction to the Islamist terrorist groups of the 21st century such as Al-Qaeda and Hezbollah, it assesses why such violence emerges, how it is sustained, and - most crucially of all - how and why it ends.
