Can We Construct a Grand Strategy to Counter Terrorism?

Fifteen years after September 11, the United States still faces terror threats—both domestic and foreign. After years of wars, ever more intensive and pervasive surveillance, enhanced security measures at major transportation centers, and many attempts to explain who we are fighting and why and how to fight them, the threats continue to multiply. So, too, do our attempts to understand just what terrorism is and how to counter it.

Two leaders in the field of terrorism studies, Martha Crenshaw and Gary LaFree, provide a critical look at how we have dealt with the terror threat over the years. They make clear why it is so difficult to create policy to counter terrorism. The foes are multiple and often amorphous, the study of the field dogged by disagreement on basic definitional and methodological issues, and the creation of policy hobbled by an exacting standard: the counterterrorist must succeed all the time; the terrorist only once. As Countering Terrorism shows, there are no simple solutions to this threat.

Review:

A substantial contribution to the literature on terrorism and counterterrorism. Paul Pillar, Nonresident Senior Fellow, Center for Security Studies, Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Services, Georgetown University

A corrective to oversimplified analysis. The scholarship is sound and the book is a welcome offering from two scholars whose knowledge and credentials are superlative. Audrey Kurth Cronin, Professor of International Relations, American University, and author of How Terrorism Ends: Understanding the Decline and Demise of Terrorist Campaigns

This is an important academic and public policy analysis of the role of the “conceptual and empirical requirements of defining, classifying, explaining, and responding to terrorist attacks” in “crafting effective counterterrorism policy.”―Dr, Joshua Sinai, Perspectives on Terrorism

Book Description BROOKINGS INSTITUTION, United States, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. It has been nearly 15 years since 9-11 and the United States still faces terror threats. After years of war, ever more intensive and pervasive surveillance, enhanced security measures at major transportation centres, and many attempts to explain who the US are fighting and why and how to fight them, the threats continue to multiply. Counterterrorism experts Martha Crenshaw and Gary LaFree provide a comprehensive critical look at how the US have dealt with the terror threat over the years. They argue that the US still finds it difficult to define just who and what it is we are fighting and at the same time we have yet to determine what is the best way to deter or eradicate terror threats. The book is a clear-eyed look at a history of determined efforts, some of which have worked and many of which have failed, and a glance forward at what can be done in the future.
