Since the attacks of September 11, 2001, scholars and policy analysts in national security have turned their attention to terrorism, considering not only how to prevent future attacks but also the roots of the problem. This book offers some of the latest research in terrorism studies. The contributors examine the sources of contemporary terrorism, discussing the impact of globalization, the influence of religious beliefs, and the increasing dissatisfaction felt by the world's powerless. They consider the strategies and motivations of terrorists, offering contending perspectives on whether or not terrorists can be said to achieve their goals; explore different responses to the threat of terrorism, discussing such topics as how the United States can work more effectively with its allies; and contemplate the future of al-Qaida, asking if its networked structure is an asset or a liability. The essays in "Contending with Terrorism" address some of the central topics in the analysis of contemporary terrorism. They promise to guide future policy and inspire further research into one of most important security issues of the twenty-first century.

"It is hard to be stimulating and instructive on a subject that has held as much attention as has terrorism for a decade and more. But the essays in this volume combine those characteristics for the benefit of students and experts alike. The reader will come away with valuable new insights and perspectives."--Philip B. Heymann, James Barr Ames Professor of Law, Harvard Law School, author of Terrorism, Freedom, and Security
