Terrorism and Anti-terrorism: A Normative and Practical Assessment

Files

Description

This book addresses the complex, challenging, and dangerous problems relating to terrorism and to the attempts to address and stop terrorism. It includes not only a positivistic legal analysis of issues, but attempts to assess the costs facing us all in this modern reality of political violence. Blakesley challenges the so-called realist premise of fighting fire with fire and attempts to devolve a working definition of terrorism that may be applied to whatever group or nation that uses terror or terrorism as a tactic or strategy.
