Joshua B. Morgan (Editor)

Series: Focus on Terrorism, Terrorism, Hot Spots and Conflict-Related Issues
BISAC: POL037000

Terrorism, sadly, seems, here to stay and to stay with a vengeance. It turns out that the United States was not prepared for it and now must play catch-up. In doing so, even agreement on how to define terrorism is in doubt and what to do about it seems beyond comprehension at the moment. This book presents various topics including Lal Masjid and it’s aftermath; closing the Guantanamo detention center; and also with a focus on Afghanistan (Imprint: Nova)
