Terrorism, like crime, can never be completely eradicated. As the title of this book suggests, however, the new specter of al-Qa'eda-styled terrorism can be better contained. This book highlights some of the legal and policy challenges that confront the United States, and emphasizes the importance of developing capable military forces while promoting democracy as the long-term solution to terrorism. Even the cynic who believes that the world is ruled by the threat--or use--of force must admit the importance of America establishing its leadership through the rule of law. The world's most precious commodities--democratic values and human rights--must not become casualties in the War on Terror. Indeed, these are the very tools that will win the War on Terror."

Topics covered:

* What Is Terrorism?
* The War on Terror
* Expanding the War on Terror
* Civil Liberties and the War on Terror
* Necessity and Rationale for the Law of War--Lessons from My Lai
* A New Paradigm for War and Avoiding Terrorism
* Leading the Way--Pax Americana or the Rule of Law?
* The Role of the Military and Army Special Forces in Promoting Human Rights
* America Must Stay the Course
