Global Perspectives on Counterterrorism
"All too often discussions of the law and policy of counterterrorism in the United States take place within a vacuum, failing to take advantage of the lessons and experience of other states who have confronted similar dilemmas. This terrific study amply fills that gap, providing an indispensable resource for scholars and practitioners alike."

"Packed into this single-volume introduction to legal and political choices in counter-terrorism are comparisons of approaches in the United States, Russia, India, Israel, and Spain, as well as thoughtful treatments of interrogation, criminal justice, and judicial review of detention and other practices. Spanning domestic and international law, ethics and policy, the thoughtfully presented materials and questions in this book bring students and teachers up to speed on cutting-edge issues."
