The No-Nonsense Guide to Global Terrorism, Second Edition
Written by Jonathan Barker.
Published in Canada in association with New Internationalist Publications Ltd. by Between the Lines, 2008.
|Terrorism and counter-terrorism have become key points in
political talk and government policy. This No-Nonsense guide has been
revised and updated to take account of the major changes in global terrorism
over the past five years.
Jonathan Barker presents a highly accessible history of terrorism, looking at examples from the Middle East and elsewhere, instances of state terrorism, and the terrorist fringes of political movements. He also delves beneath the surface, offering political and moral analysis of the causes and contexts of terrorism, the theories that justify and guide terrorist acts, and the battle of images that accompanies them. And in analyzing the dynamics of terrorism, Barker scrutinizes the "war on terror" and its fateful consequences for political participation and real democracy.
About the author: Jonathan Barker is Professor Emeritus of Political Science at the University of Toronto. He is the author of several books including the first edition of the No-Nonsense Guide to Terrorism (2003).
