Written by two leading scholars, this book is an accessible
overview of the global political consequences of the 9/11 terror
The War on Terror has defined the first decade of this century.
It has been marked by the deaths of thousands of people, political
turmoil, massive destruction, and intense fear. Regardless of the
name it goes under, the long war on terror will continue to affect
lives across the world. Its catalyst, 9/11, did not have to happen,
nor did the character of the responses. This book offers a set of
novel interpretations of how we got here, where we are, and where
we should be heading. It is organised around twelve penetrating and
readable essays, full of novel interpretations and succinct
summaries of complex ideas and events. In their examination of
those aspects of global order touched by terror, the authors argue
that the dangers of international terrorism are not overblown.
Future 9/11s are possible: so is a more just and law-governed
world. Terrorism cannot be disinvented, but with more intelligent
policies than have been on show these past ten years, it can be
overcome and made politically anachronistic.
This book will be essential reading for all students of
terrorism studies, international security, war and conflict studies
and IR in general, as well as of much interest to well-informed lay
