This book takes a multidisciplinary look at global terrorism and human rights. It results from a conference, but rather than the usual simple publication of conference papers, with the resulting duplication and lack of flow between chapters, the editor has worked with the presenters to rework the conference proceedings into a cohesive work. The topics covered range from the best way to structure oversight functions, to the failure of inductive logic as an analysis tool to the need for joint assessments among countries. This book would be of interest to intelligence officers, policy makers and administrators alike.
