From Publishers Weekly:
An updated version of Laquer's 1977 Terrorism, the present study seeks to disentangle truth from the mythology of terrorism that has emerged during the last two decades. The arguments are essentially negative: terrorism is neither a new phenomenon nor a "natural" response to oppression; terrorist organizations are not shoestring operations with deeply ideological foundations nor are they primarily based in the Middle East; and state-sponsored terrorism is "not a far more dangerous threat than any previous movement." In the author's controversial view, terrorism is a side-show affecting the lives of a relative handful of people; it has not brought about any major political, economic, social or cultural upheaval; the damage caused by terrorists has been repaired without much delay and at comparatively little cost; the political impact of terrorism is inversely proportional to the attention it receives in the media. As Laquer sees it, the danger of international terrorism is not in the acts themselves but in the possibility of triggering a full-scale war.

Buchbeschreibung Palgrave Macmillan Jan 2017, 2017. Buch. Buchzustand: Neu. 218x148x15 mm. Neuware - This book features a lively debate between two prominent scholars-Michael A. Genovese and David Gray Adler-on the critical issue of whether the Constitution, written in the 18th Century, remains adequate to the national security challenges of our time. The question of the scope of the president's constitutional authority-if any-to initiate war on behalf of the American people, long the subject of heated debate in the corridors of power and the groves of academe, has become an issue of surpassing importance for a nation confronted by existential threats in an Age of Terrorism. This question should be thoroughly reviewed and debated by members of Congress, and considered by all Americans before they are asked to go to war. If the constitutional allocation of powers on matters of war and peace is outdated, what changes should be made Is there a need to increase presidential power What role should Congress play in the war on terror 124 pp. Englisch.

Buchbeschreibung Nijhoff D. Brill Aug 2016, 2016. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. 236x165x13 mm. Neuware - Sovereignty in the Age of Global Terrorism: The Role of International Organisations analyses the role of international organisations in adopting counterterrorism measures after 9/11 and the impact of these measures on the sovereignty of their Member States. The book examines the counterterrorism regimes of the UN and four regional organisations (with a special focus on the EU), as well as their implementation by their Member States. It includes the 2008 Kadi case of the European Court of Justice as case study of the conflicts between legal regimes that have competing mandates to fight terrorism. The relevance of the book lies in both comprehending the rationale for international actions against terrorism and the consequences on international law and State sovereignty. 12 pp. Englisch.
