The tragic events of September 11, 2001, and the consequent "war on terrorism" have made the question of effective counterterrorism policy a growing public concern, not just in the United States but throughout the world. The essays in Combating Terrorism offer a unique overview and evaluation of the counterterrorism policies of ten countries: the United States, Argentina, Peru, Colombia, Spain, the United Kingdom, Israel, Turkey, India, and Japan. A post-September 11 assessment of current counterterrorism practices is given for each country.
The essays address the same set of questions to allow for cross-national comparisons of strategies and an assessment of counterterrorism practices.
Yonah Alexander's conclusion summarizes the lessons that may be learned from the experiences of the ten countries and discusses a list of best practices in counterterrorism.
Combating Terrorism will be of interest to policymakers, scholars, and other individuals with professional responsibilities in the area of terrorism and security studies. Clear and accessible, this book will also provide the general reader valuable insight into the wide array of issues that face governments and convey possible solutions to one of the foremost threats to world peace.
