Terrorism and Counterterrorism

Vijay Khare (Author)

This book highlights a contemporary problem faced by the world--Terrorism. It is an extremely complex term to be defined because of the lack of clarity in the manifestation of terrorist acts, motives and objectives. Terrorism is often referred to as an act of violence directed towards civilians and non-combatants in pursuit of a political or ideological aim. Today, it has become one of the biggest security challenges to the world community. It can threaten the dignity and security of human beings to a great extent; disturb peaceful existence and create fear in the minds of people. It can also jeopardize the very fundamental freedom and destabilize governments. Contemporary terrorism is hologrammatic; it thrives on fear created through violence and propagated by using communication technology. Contemporary terrorism has shaken the traditional concept of security. It has shifted the entire debate to a non-traditional security domain. To carry out effective counter-terrorism measures, it requires a strategy centred on human security and national interest. In most of the counter-terrorism strategies, the role of law enforcement agencies and domestic intelligence has drastically increased. A must-read book not just for defence professionals and strategists but also for political decision-makers across the globe. This illuminating book would be of immense value even to students of statecraft and the uninitiated.
