"In Counterterrorism Strategies, seven experts examine how the United States, France, Germany, Italy, Egypt, and Sri Lanka have combated terrorist groups from the 1970s to the present and draw lessons that are applicable to today's threats." "Counterterrorism Strategies shows that there are no simple or complete solutions to the dangers posed by determined and elusive terrorists, but several of the countries detailed here have had significant successes. The contributors' analyses of the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of strategies used by these six countries offer a counterterrorism road map for the twenty-first century. This book is essential reading for policymakers, for counterterrorism scholars and professionals, and for members of the general public who are concerned about the general direction of the international campaign against terrorism."--Jacket

Terrorists in our midst : combating foreign-affinity terrorism in America by Yonah Alexander( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over eight years after the most devastating terrorist assault in history, this book explores a key strategic question: whether the United States, unilaterally or in concert with its friends and allies, can successfully confront the terrorist challenge in the twenty-first century in spite of escalating levels of fear and formidable odds. Also considers the following questions: How did foreign terrorist organizations exploit American human and material resources to perpetrate attacks domestically and internationally? What lessons can be drawn from the successes and failures of countermeasures directed against foreign-affinity terrorism through local, state, and federal structures? Finally, are there any specific recommendations that can be effective in bringing the "enemy next door" challenge to a manageable level within America?
