Description - Superterrorism by Lawrence Freedman

The attacks of 11 September 2001 on the United States, organised by the al-Qaeda network , were immediately described as a turning point in international history. This book examines the policy responses to superterrorism, suggesting that the world was not in fact turned upside down by the events of this day, but rather that some established trends and tendencies were picked up and reinforced while others were recast. Leading specialists look at how terrorism is now viewed, the role of the armed forces, the responses of the European Union and NATO, the impact on the transatlantic relationship, the adjustments demanded of different legal systems and financial institutions, and how the media affected responses to these dramatic events.
