Book Description

This insightful text examines the widely varying attitudes to terrorist attack in Western government and society. The focal point of the book is the ideological gap between the moral reaction to terrorism and the military and political response that follows. Rather than there being a predictable response, a spectrum of possible outcomes emerges. Using this variety of reactions from support for terrorist aims through to outright condemnation, a middle ground may be established between individual rights and security for the many.
