Terrorism and Anti-terrorism: A Normative and Practical Assessment
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.
