How to Respond

Richard English

  • Reveals the long view of terrorism: how it emerges, how it is sustained, and - most crucially - how and why it ends
  • Argues that we need a radically new approach to dealing with international terrorism
  • Deals with the whole spectrum of terrorist organizations, both secular and religious, from the IRA, ETA, and the German Red Army Faction to Islamist terrorist groups in the 21st century such as Al-Qaeda and Hezbollah
  • Draws on first-hand research into terrorist organizations to offer an accessible overview of one of the most important political problems of the 21st century - and we can effectively respond to it
