The terrorist attacks of September 11th and more recent atrocities in Russia, Indonesia and Kenya have demonstrated that terrorism now poses the most dangerous threat to stability, democracy and prosperity around the world.

This major new book examines how the world has reacted to, and been affected by, the attacks on September 11th, ensuing war in Afghanistan and President George W. 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 across the world.

Few books can boast the quality and range of the contributions to this volume, which locate the war on terror in a truly global and intellectual context.

Review:

"This volume provides an especially comprehensive set of insightful summaries of global responses to the September 11 attacks and their consequences. Pointed and concise accounts of the impact of 9/11 on the policies of the major states and regions of the world are supplemented by thoughtful reflections on the effects of these events on international organizations and on the global economy. Besides serving as a valuable and highly accessible overview for the general reader, --with its well-documented contributions by an impressive array of specialists--also addresses the needs of international relations professionals."
-Robert H. Donaldson, University of Tulsa
"An excellent, comprehensive survey of the importance of 9/11 for world politics which will interest specialists and general readers alike."
-Andrew Linklater, University of Wales, Aberystwyth

Synopsis:

The terrorist attacks on September 11 and more recent atrocities in Russia, Indonesia and Kenya have demonstrated that terrorism is a global threat to stability, democracy and prosperity. This book examines how the world has reacted to, and been affected by the attacks on September 11th, ensuing war in Afghanistan and President George W. Bush's declaration of a 'war on terror' as the 'first war of the 21st century'. The contributors trace the reactions of individual governments and public opinion across North America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia to terrorism, the war in Afghanistan and Iraq. The discussion of individual countries is placed in context through an examination of wider issues such as the future of Al-Qaeda, the growing refugee problem, the effect on the world economy and a significant revisiting of our approaches to understanding international relations. There are now many books available on terrorism but few can boast the quality and range of the contributions to this volume, which locate the war on terror in a truly global intellectual context.

It is essential reading for all students of international relations and terrorism as well as the general reader wishing to understand this complex subject. Contributors: Paul Wilkinson, Rohan Gunaratna, Robert Singh, Andrew Dorman, Richard McAllister, Adrian Hyde-Price, Philip Daniels, Roland Dannreuther, Raymond Hinnebusch, Gwenn Okruhlik, David Newman,
