Editorial Reviews

Review

"This volume brings together many of the world's foremost experts on terrorism and counterterrorism, who begin the important process of developing a grand strategy to address contemporary, real-world threats. Scholars and policymakers alike will benefit from the advice of contributors to reject anachronistic thinking about the relative importance of state and nonstate threats, as well as their warning that an uninformed, emotional response that ignores the dynamic relationship between terrorism and counterterrorism could increase the risk of catastrophic attack." - Jessica Stern, lecturer in public policy, Harvard University, and author of Terror in the Name of God: Why Religious Militants Kill; "Most studies of terrorism have been descriptive works about specific groups. The new priority of the problem heightens the need for policy-relevant literature that provides analytical, comparative, and functional assessments of policy instruments. This timely book, with solid and comprehensive coverage by an impressive array of expert academics and practitioners, does much to meet this need." - Richard K. Betts, director of the Institute of War and Peace Studies at Columbia University, and adjunct senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations; "[A]n unusually interesting, readable, and well integrated look at the essential elements needed for an American grand strategy to confront the scourge of global terrorism. This volume successfully seeks to explore the many components of American power necessary to construct a national campaign of substantial duration and effort against international terrorism.... This compendium demonstrates the extraordinarily rich analysis being done by a new generation of strategic thinkers who are tackling the problems born from post 9/11 international circumstances, much in the way an earlier generation of strategic thinkers thought about American purpose at the advent of the cold war." - Kurt M. Campbell, senior vice president and director of the International Security Program, Center for Strategic and International Studies"

"[A]n unusually interesting, readable, and well integrated look at the essential elements needed for an American grand strategy to confront the scourge of global terrorism. This volume successfully seeks to explore the many components of American power necessary to construct a national campaign of substantial duration and effort against international terrorism. Particularly noteworthy are David Rapoport's historical overview of the four phases of modern terrorism and its state sponsored supporters, and Martha Crenshaw's very useful exploration about how and when the struggle against international terrorism assumed the level of grand strategy. She also reminds us importantly that 'wars are waged against adversaries, not methods.' This compendium demonstrates the extraordinarily rich analysis being done by a new generation of strategic thinkers who are tackling the problems born from post 9/11 international circumstances, much in the way an earlier generation of strategic thinkers thought about American purpose at the advent of the cold war.

This book does what it sets out to, which is look at the issues under a 'grand strategy' for dealing with terrorism. It includes things like police action, foreign aid, and the whole realm of possible solutions. It is broad, so don't expect lots of specifics. In fact, if you know an area well, skip that section. But, if you want an overview this book will do it. It is easy to read, and each chapter includes a summary conclusion. Also, it seems pretty even handed and doesn't overly bash too many people or organizations.

This was an interesting read. Relatively even in view rather than a 1 sided leftist academic view. Good read for sure.
