Beschreibung

The ever-present threat of terrorism and the growing human-rights backlash against anti-terrorist policies are becoming ever more significant on the international stage. Constant media-coverage and public concern have characterised the debate over the last ten years.This book is a fair and objective assessment of counter-terrorist policy and human rights worldwide, and covers a wide breadth of international material. While raising key questions for reader consideration, this book aims for straight-forward consideration, leaving polemic to the reader.

Autorentext

David Whittaker was formerly senior lecturer in international relations at Teeside university. Now a freelance expert on terrorism, his books include The Terrorism Reader (Routledge, 4th Edition 2012) and Asylum-Seekers and Refugees and Terrorism: Understanding the Global Threat.
