Summary
"Terrorism remains a major problem for many democratic countries and the wider international community. Recent history shows that it would be wrong to underestimate terrorism's potential strategic impact." "Terrorism Versus Democracy examines the problem of liberal democratic response. Is it possible to draw some key lessons from the recent experience of democracies in responding to terrorism? Are democracies fatally disadvantaged in the face of prolonged and ruthless terrorist campaigns? Does the only way to reduce significantly or to end terrorism necessarily involve major curtailments of democracy, human rights, and the rule of law? What are the key ingredients of an effective liberal democratic strategy to deal with terrorism? Is it feasible to develop a response which avoids the dangers of over-reaction and under-reaction undermining the very democracy one is trying to defend, while at the same time effectively protecting the right to life, the most basic of all human rights? All these question and many others are examined in Terrorism Versus Democracy." "This book is aimed not only at academia but also at a wider readership including policy-markers, legislators, and the law-enforcement and security professions as well as members of the general public in all democratic countries."--Jacket
