Unpaid Annotation
In Countering the New Terrorism, authors Ian Lesser, Bruce Hoffman, John Arquilla, David Ronfeldt, and Michele Zanini trace the recent evolution of international terrorism against civilian and U.S. military targets, offer judgments on the future directions of terrorism, and propose strategies for its containment. Can terrorism be stopped? Contained, yes, stopped, no. This frank report addresses the role of military forces, especially air and space power, in national counterterrorism strategy and stresses that the United States must strive to make terrorism "more transparent" and address the problem of privatized terror.
Main Description
Recent bombings of U.S. embassies in Africa remind us that U.S. citizens and U.S. interest are not immune to terrorism. Featuring the works of world-renowned experts, this book traces the recent evolution of international terrorism against civilian and U.S. military targets, looks ahead to where terrorism is going, and assesses how it might be contained.
