Description - All About Terrorism by Keith Suter
Answers all the questions you're too afraid to ask about terrorism. Did the events of September 11 really change the world? Why would a person agree to become a suicide bomber? How effective are our intelligence agencies? Should the govenment bring our troops home from Iraq? Would a national ID card system make Australians safer? In this book, Keith Suter, author of the popular Local Notebook and Global Notebook, answers all the questions you're too afraid to ask about terrorism. In simple, no-nonsense language, Suter gives a concise overview of the history and politics of terrorism, examining conflicts in the Middle East, Russia, Northern Ireland, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, and other parts of the world. He discusses all the big issues, both local and international - from the best way to deal with 'rogue states' to the likelihood of a terrorist attack on Australia. This book is the perfect backgrounder for anyone who wants a better understanding of the events covered every day in the news.
