Terrorism versus democracy : the liberal state response by Paul Wilkinson( Book )

65 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and Croatian and held by 2,171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Terrorism remains a major problem for many democratic countries and the wider international community. Recent history shows that it would be wrong to underestimate terrorism's potential strategic impact." "Terrorism Versus Democracy examines the problem of liberal democratic response. Is it possible to draw some key lessons from the recent experience of democracies in responding to terrorism? Are democracies fatally disadvantaged in the face of prolonged and ruthless terrorist campaigns? Does the only way to reduce significantly or to end terrorism necessarily involve major curtailments of democracy, human rights, and the rule of law? What are the key ingredients of an effective liberal democratic strategy to deal with terrorism? Is it feasible to develop a response which avoids the dangers of over-reaction and under-reaction undermining the very democracy one is trying to defend, while at the same time effectively protecting the right to life, the most basic of all human rights? All these question and many others are examined in Terrorism Versus Democracy." "This book is aimed not only at academia but also at a wider readership including policy-markers, legislators, and the law-enforcement and security professions as well as members of the general public in all democratic countries."--Jacket

Terrorism : theory and practice by Paul Wilkinson( Book )

What is the answer to global terrorism? The fundamental point about terrorism is present in its very name: it is violence designed to achieve political gain by spreading terror. Terrorism is essentially asymmetric and works by cowing people into submission. Which is precisely why it can be answered; after all, who wants to be bullied in to submission? In fact, the fight against terror does not only take place in the dusty hills of Afghanistan, Africa or Asia: it takes place in our own minds.In this book, world expert Paul Wilkinson answers several frequently asked questions about terrorism.

Political terrorism by Paul Wilkinson( Book )

27 editions published between 1974 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 769 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What do we mean when we speak of terror? In its most important and general sense the term signifies a psychic state of great fear or dread. There is an almost infinite variety of events, phenomena, persons and objects that may, under certain conditions, strike terror into the hearts of human beings. Death and natural catastrophe have provided the common dreads of men and women throughout their history. Mankind's only final defence against the King of Terrors has been his beliefs in a form of life after death, his small cries of faith in the face of disaster

12 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Terrorism and Human Rights aims to reinforce our knowledge and understanding of the problems involved in balancing human rights protection and security concerns. It considers how these human rights issues have been raised by the various international debates and policy issues which have been created by the continuing global war on terrorism." "In the shadow of 9/11 the threat of terrorism is an ever increasing global preoccupation. This book discusses the effects of the legal and social aspects of terrorism. It does this by examining the relation between security issues and human rights from the angle of international organisations, political bodies and different countries. Some of the examples covered and which are examined in light of their approach and reaction to terrorism include the European Union, the UN, Russia and the United States." "This book will be useful for all students of security, politics and terrorism studies, but also for policy-makers, legislators, and the law-enforcers." "This was previously published as a special issue of Terrorism and Political Violence."--Jacket

International terrorism : the changing threat and the EU's response by Paul Wilkinson( )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If any Europeans observing the 9/11 atrocities in the United States had comforted themselves with the belief that Europe was immune from such attacks, this illusion was tragically shattered by the bombings in Madrid (2004) and London (2005) which resulted in the slaughter of many civilians. How should the EU respond to this new form of terrorism which is closely related to religious fanaticism and whose explicit aim is mass killing? How serious is the Al Qaeda network's threat to Europe and to Europe's interests abroad? What kind of strategy should the EU adopt in order to unravel the Al Qaeda network? What are the emerging trends and the future prospects for terrorism and counter-terrorism? These are some of the key issues discussed in this Paper. The author seeks to identify some general principles which should underpin the anti-terrorism policies and measures of the EU member states and of the EU itself. Stressing the transnational dimension and the importance of enhanced cooperation between member states, he suggests some key components of an effective strategy to dismantle the Al Qaeda network, while also emphasising that democracies must never fall into the trap of using the methods of terror to defeat terror
