“Professor Yonah Alexander, a veritable institution in his own right with regard to studies on terrorism . . . has not only been studying terrorism for decades, but has analyzed the most effective ways of combating it. By presenting an analysis of the successes and failures of six nations in their battle against terrorism, he is offering us a useful tool to help us learn from one another, so that we might develop a philosophy that inspires a shared strategy against terrorism, a phenomenon that threatens us all equally.”
"Learning from the experiences of other countries is a critical part of finding improved ways to combat terrorism. A valuable aid in that process is COUNTERTERRORISM STRATEGIES, which offers concise but comprehensive portraits of the counterterrorist perspectives and techniques of six nations that have faced a wide variety of terrorist challenges."
"Yonah Alexander and company have created a work of immeasurable importance. COUNTERTERRORISM STRATEGIES is unique in that it goes far beyond the commonplace recitations of current dangers by investigating counterterrorism problems and initiatives in six nations. The success and failures he distills for the reader are practical, rooted in experience, and battle tested. The clarity of analysis and presentation style combine to create a very useful volume that should be read by policymakers and tacticians alike."
"No one person, entity, or country has an all-encompassing strategy for countering the evils of terrorism. The solution, therefore, is to assemble the collective wisdom of the countries most engaged in combating this threat. In this book, Yonah Alexander and the other authors offer insights and communicate ‘lessons learned’ in fulfillment of the maxim that wise men learn by other men’s mistakes; fools, by their own."
“The quality of the organization, research, and writing makes Counterterrorism Strategies invaluable for the critical and dynamic areas of criminal justice and international security policies. Editor Yonah Alexander has worked for many decades on international and comparative counterterrorism and is a giant without equal in the field of counterterrorism policy.”
“Counterterrorism Strategies is a must-read for specialists in the growing field of counterterrorism and homeland security as well as the general public. The six countries it examines are good examples of how much work still needs to be done to fully comprehend the true dimensions of the new global threat of terrorism. The book also emphasizes the need for more and deeper international cooperation in order to meet this complex challenge.”
