Description - Allied Against Terrorism by Eric Rosand
Allied against Terrorism is an up-to-date assessment of the global efforts to combat terrorism. Beginning with a look at the effectiveness of the international measures against terrorist violence already in place, Alistair Millar and Eric Rosand give a rigorous analysis of the United Nations-led campaign of nonmilitary measures to combat global terrorist threats, identifying some successes but also detailing the many shortcomings of the UN's operation units and political bodies responsible for counterterrorism.
Millar and Rosand offer a number of reform suggestions to make UN efforts more coherent and effective, but argue that these reforms are only an interim stage in coordinating an effective global counterterrorism campaign.
