A time of terror : how democratic societies respond to revolutionary violence by J. Bowyer Bell( Book )

16 editions published in 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 953 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Forfatteren beskriver i bogen demokratiske regeringers og befolkningers reaktioner over for den internationale terror. Der omtales en række tilfælde, hvor terrorister under navn af frihedsbevægelser eller til fremme af fred og broderlig kærlighed har dræbt uskyldige, bortført politikere og forretningsfolk, kapret fly o.s.v. og hvor kriminelle eller sindssyge har foretaget lignende terrorhandlinger. Handlinger som hele verden kan følge i TV, medens de udspiller sig. Bell gennemgår de modaktioner, landenes myndigheder har foretaget sig, og de heldige eller uheldige resultater disse modaktioner har resulteret i. Forfatteren diskuterer som afslutning, hvad myndighederne fremtidig kan gøre i tilfælde af denne art - uden dog i følge sagens natur at kunne pege på færdige løsninger

"Murders on the Nile takes us into a murky underworld of Egyptian exiles, Palestinian and Iranian militants, and Arabs waging jihad in Afghanistan - all of them joined together by a dream of violence, freedom and vengeance. By the beginning of the twenty-first century, these Islamist zealots had filled their ranks with holy men and hijackers, charismatic preachers and street thugs. Their yearning for the paradise of an imagined past had become a conspiracy found not only along the Nile, but ultimately along the Hudson as well."--Jacket
