International Terrorism and Global Order in the Twenty First Century

G Gopa Kumar (Editor)
Synopsis Global terrorism has emerged as a horrifying reality and forceful phenomenon of the 21 century. Although, traces of its influence could be noticed in the past, the rapid growth of terrorism is a product of cold war politics and the neo-imperialist policies adopted by major powers since 1945. The last decade of the 20 century witnessed the disintegration of Soviet Union, the emergence of the unipolar world and the uneven march of globalization and liberalisation in developed and developing countries. The rise of ethno-nationalism and aggressive politics in South Asia, West Asia and Central Asia could be linked to the widening socio-economic disparities of the present day world. Terrorism is both a cause and an effect. Its roots are firmly grounded in hunger, poverty, inequality, ignorance, illiteracy, unemployment, and ethnic prejudices. This book addresses the multifaceted dimensions of terrorism including nuclear terrorism, narco terrorism, cyber terrorism, bio-terrorism, cross-border terrorism, and suicide terrorism. The impact of September 11, 2001 terrorist attack on USA and the developments in USA and Canada, the cross-border terrorism and security threat in South Asia and the trends and patterns in the emerging global order in the 21 century are addressed.
