What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“By resisting the temptation to indulge in utopian fantasising, this experienced group of scholars, including Chris Brown, Thomas Pogge and Andrew Kuper, take their role of drawing up a new blueprint for global governance suitably seriously ... the careful selection of essays [constitute an] excellent collection.”
Political Studies Review

“An intelligent and rounded book for those seeking to understand global terror.”
Political Studies Review

“A useful addition to the burgeoning literature on the global war on terror.”

“This book explores the funding of terrorist groups and the roles of intelligence-gathering and international law in combating terrorism. Contributions from a range of eminent analysts add vigour to the arguments.”

Understanding Global Terror is an important book that challenges the cliches that have grown on this subject. It is an essential resource for all those seeking to comprehend how terrorism and the war against it have changed international relations since September 2001. An impressive collection of thought-provoking essays by some of the top minds in the UK, the US, and beyond, this book provides insight into the 'big picture' of global terror. It demonstrates that there is no single 'war on terror' but rather several, each being fought for different reasons and in different ways.”
David Betz, King's College London
