Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


For undergraduate/graduate courses in International Relations, World Politics, American Foreign Policy, Peace Studies, and Global Issues. This text comprehensively covers the debatable issues regarding the definitional characteristics of the post-September 11th wave of terrorism, the multiple roots of this deadly new form of international violence, and the leading ideas being considered as means for the "war on global terrorism" to be won. Informed and informative interpretations, written by the world's most authoritative scholars especially for this book, present a balanced and accessible set of essays and chapters describing the new international terrain that has emerged in the wake of 9-11, all introduced and put into context by detailed and accessible Part introductions by the editor.
