Attacking Terrorism by Audrey Kurth Cronin

Book Description

The definition and understanding of "terrorism" is in a state of unprecedented evolution. No longer are acts of terrorism rare and far-flung.

Attacking Terrorism brings together some of the world's finest experts, people who have made the study of this rising menace their life's work, to provide a comprehensive picture of the challenges and opportunities of the campaign against international terrorism. Part one, "The Nature of Terrorism," provides an overview and foundation for the current campaign, placing it within the political and historical context of previous threats and responses. Part two, "The Responses to Terrorism," looks at the range of policy instruments required in an effective strategy against terrorism.

How Terrorism Ends by Audrey Kurth Cronin How Terrorism Ends, Paperback (August 2011)

Examines how terrorist campaigns have met their demise over the past two centuries, and applies these enduring lessons to outline a strategy against al-Qaeda. This book answers questions such as: How long do terrorist campaigns last? When does targeting the leadership finish a group? And when do negotiations lead to the end?

Ending Terrorism by Audrey Kurth Cronin Ending Terrorism, Paperback (November 2007)

Like all other terrorist movements, al-Qaeda will end. While it has traits that exploit and reflect the international context, it is not utterly without precedent: some aspects of al-Qaeda are unusual, but many are not. This paper explains five typical strategies of terrorism and why Western thinkers fail to grasp them.
