The terrible attacks of September 11th and more recent atrocities in Russia and Indonesia have demonstrated that terrorism now poses the most dangerous threat to stability, democracy, and prosperity around the world. This book examines how the world has reacted to and been affected by the terrible attacks on September 11th, ensuing war in Afghanistan and to President George Bush's declaration of a "war on terror" as the "first war of the 21st Century". The contributions by distinguished specialists in the field examine the domestic implications of terrorism and counter terrorist initiatives.
