Dr. Yayla presents that terrorism is a social phenomenon with criminal consequences which needs to be dealt by means of two dimensional approaches, the social dimension of terrorism and the criminal dimension of terrorism. This book offers a conceptual model which addresses both of these dimensions under the titles of long-term solutions and short-term solutions. The long-term solutions deal with the social aspects of terrorism under the title of Proactive Approach to Terrorism and the short-term solutions deal with the criminal aspects of terrorism under the title of The Immediate Fight against Terrorism. The author thinks that there is a tendency of not asking the question of "Why does terrorism occur?" Instead, the focus is usually on dealing with the consequences of terrorism and future terrorist threats. While it is essential that the governments need to provide the finest security measures for their societies, at the same time they need to address the reasons behind terrorism. This book, from stated perspective, offers a conceptual model to address both aspects of terrorism for a more complete fight against today's most painful problem.
