Democratic Responses To Terrorism by Leonard B. (University of Nevada, Reno, USA) Weinberg


Democratic Responses To Terrorism by Leonard B. (University of Nevada, Reno, USA) Weinberg

Democratic Responses to Terrorism tackles how to protect democratic societies against terrorist violence while, at the same time, making sure that the steps democracies take to protect themselves do no fundamental harm to the rule of law and the rights of citizens. With a foreword by Fernando Henrique Cardoso, former president of Brazil, the essays here assess such elements as the role of the legal framework, human rights, democracy and civil society, as well as international cooperation. The series explores one of the most pressing issues of our time: how to reconcile the need to fight terrorism with our desire to protect and enhance democratic values. The volumes are an outgrowth of a summit conference organized by the Club de Madrid, an independent organization comprised of many former heads of state, dedicated to strengthening democracy around the world.


Leonard Weinberg, one of the leading scholars of terrorism in the world, has brought together a group of outstanding authors and edited the most comprehensive collection on the perplexing issue of the democratic response to terrorism. I have no doubt that this brilliant collection will become an essential reading for academics, policy makers, and students. --Ami Pedahzur, The University of Texas at Austin Weinberg has brought together a collection of thought-provoking essays on the complexities involved in promoting democratization in countries challenged by terrorism. The chapters on the problems of democratization in Muslim societies are particularly valuable, making this a timely work of political education for our policymakers and citizens. --Paul Wilkinson, Chairman of the Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence, University of St Andrews This book steers a welcome and reasoned path between political polemics and scholastic abstractions. It contains succinct but nuanced essays by noted experts on a subject of crucial importance to our time. --Louise Richardson, Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Harvard University Recommended. General readers and students of all levels. -- CHOICE

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
