About this title


Argues that the current international community is not doing enough to deter terrorism and looks at ways democratic societies can effectively reduce the frequency and severity of terrorist attacks.

From the Back Cover:

"Perhaps America's most brilliant public intellectual, Alan Dershowitz attacks the central challenge of our times-terrorism-with ruthless honesty and striking originality, delivered in a narrative so compelling that the pages seem to turn themselves."-Richard North Patterson, author of Protect and Defend; "Critical reading for anyone interested in the legacy terrorism has left us, how our previous weak responses have encouraged more of it, and how we can end it."-William J. Bennett, author of Why We Fight: Moral Clarity and the War on Terrorism; "Dershowitz has a great deal to say-and to teach us-about the balance we are now struggling to achieve between domestic security and civil liberty."-Barry Gewen, New York Times Book Review; "Written with great clarity and perception, Alan Dershowitz's new book on the murderous impact of international terrorism helps the reader understand the religious fanaticism and misguided political violence that continue to plague the twenty-first century, as well as their unavoidable consequences."-Elie Wiesel
