In this innovative and concise work, Israeli politician Benjamin Netanyahu offers a compelling approach to understanding and fighting the increase in domestic and international terrorism throughout the world. Citing diverse examples from around the globe, Netanyahu demonstrates that domestic terrorist groups are usually no match for an advanced technological society which can successfully roll back terror without any significant curtailment of civil liberties. But Netanyahu sees an even more potent threat from the new international terrorism which is increasingly the product of Islamic militants, who draw their inspiration and directives from Iran and its growing cadre of satellite states. The spread of fundamentalist Islamic terrorism, coupled with the possibility that Iran will acquire nuclear weapons, poses a more frightening threat from an adversary less rational and therefore less controllable than was Soviet Communism. How democracies can defend themselves against this new threat concludes this provocative book.

Facing Terror is an interdisciplinary effort to examine the sociopolitical roots and consequences of radical right extremism and domestic terrorism in the United States. This work is an analytical treatment of contemporary domestic terrorism and the groups and leaders associated with such extremism. Presented and organized in textbook form, complete with instructional aids, authors Jim Rodgers and Tim Kullman incorporate the social science model of system's based, policy analysis in the study of American policy responses to domestic terrorism from 1970 to the present. Rodgers and Kullman present a tremendous amount of historical and contemporary research on domestic extremism in responses presented in the text. They provide the student with a complete but concise examination of domestic terrorism with an eye toward the future, through the presentation of concrete options and suggestions for change in how domestic terrorism issues are dealt with.
In an age of global terrorism, can the pursuit of security be reconciled with liberal democratic values and legal principles? During its "global war on terrorism," the Bush administration argued that the United States was in a new kind of conflict, one in which peacetime domestic law was irrelevant and international law inapplicable. From 2001 to 2009, the United States thus waged war on terrorism in a "no-law zone."In Laws, Outlaws, and Terrorists, Gabriella Blum and Philip Heymann reject the argument that traditional American values embodied in domestic and international law can be ignored in any sustainable effort to keep the United States safe from terrorism. They demonstrate that the costs are great and the benefits slight from separating security and the rule of law. They call for reasoned judgment instead of a wholesale abandonment of American values. They also argue that being open to negotiations and seeking to win the moral support of the communities from which the terrorists emerge are noncoercive strategies that must be included in any future efforts to reduce terrorism.
