Global Challenge of Terrorism

V.D. Chopra (Editor)
Synopsis Since the September 11, 2001 strikes on World Trade Centre in New York and subsequent tragic events in India—attacks on Jammu and Kashmir Assembly, on Indian Parliament (13 December) and growing trend to cross-border terrorism, the threat to international peace and stability, of South Asia in particular has assumed a dangerous proportion. In this volume nearly two dozen intellectuals and experts have contributed papers on rise of global terrorism—its strategic, geopolitical, socio-economic and ideological roots. This book brings into sharp focus how global terrorism has developed into a pyramid with various layers. To demolish this pyramid it is not enough to look at its hard surface of terroristic actions including human bombs. The hard surface needs to be demolished. Let us not make any bones about it. However, from the long-term point of view socio-economic, political and ideological roots of this have to be destroyed. This requires a determined political will. This is the main theme of this book.
