From the Publisher:

"A military response has been a viable option for combating international terrorism in the past and it will continue to be an option in the future. Possible military actions range from rescuing hostages to neutralizing terrorist camps and making direct strikes against targets verified as the infrastructure for state-sponsored training and support complexes of complex groups.

"The military response is part of a larger strategy that seeks to maximize the risk of punishment for terrorists and their sponsors and supporters while minimizing their potential rewards. In this context military action must be consistent with international law. If states decide that all means are justified, then those acting to preserve the rule of law in the face of the terrorist threat will become indistinguishable from the evil they seek to undo.

"Colonel Erickson’s study presents an overview of international law directed at the issue of managing international terrorism. This study is thought provoking and provides the decisionmaker with a useful tool. Of particular note is the checklist provided in appendix A that summarizes chapters 4-6.

"It behooves everyone dedicated to achieving a world free from terror to learn more of this phenomenon and how we can deal with it. Colonel Erickson’s study, for the first time and in one place, makes available a general survey of international law concerning this subject. I highly recommend his study."

Robert W. Norris Major General, United States Air Force The Judge Advocate General, United States Air Force
