Industry Reviews

"On September 11 (2001) the USA was struck by a terror attack on a scale never before imagined. . . Gus Martin's reader The New Era of Terrorism is meant, as he puts it, to stimulate critical discussion about the attributes of the new era of terrorism and the policy options available to societies and governments in this era. . . The reader is organized into three thematic parts, each of which is comprised of three chapters. . . Three articles are included in each chapter. The first articles have been selected from reputable scholarly journals, and the remaining two from policy-oriented political and legal journals and mass-market publications. . .

In the reader a wide variety of analyses and opinions are given. . . While "European authors" tend to advocate an internationalist, legalistic approach, stressing the importance of coalition-building, many "American authors" are favouring a stronger, more direct approach to terrorism, showing disappointment at a weak European response. . . Overall, this is a timely, insightful read." -- Willem I. Togtema * EUROPEAN ANALYSIS *
