"The September 11 attacks and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have raised difficult questions about the challenges and far-reaching consequences of dealing with political terrorism on an international scale. In this timely collection, experts delve into such critical topics as the root causes of terrorist acts, the relationship between authoritarian repression and terrorist movements, the most effective foreign policies for containing worldwide political violence, the role of military force, and the complexities and uncertainties of attempts to democratize autocratic or totalitarian regimes in the Middle East, Asia, Africa, Western and Eastern Europe, and Latin and Central America."--BOOK JACKET.
