Description - How States Fight Terrorism by Doron Zimmermann

As national governments struggle to cope with the complex threat of mass-casualty terrorist attacks, there is an ongoing debate about the best approaches to counterterrorism policy. The authors of "How States Fight Terrorism" explore the dynamics of counterterrorism policy development in Europe and North America. A series of case studies examine security concerns, political debates and policy responses, and military countermeasures at both the national and the international level, while the need for integrated approaches is emphasized throughout. Not least, the book provides new insights into the tension between efficiency and legitimacy as one of the core dilemmas in shaping counterterrorism policy.
