Have you seen the full range of No-Nonsense Guides?
Terrorism and counter-terrorism have become key points in political talk and government policy. This No-Nonsense guide has been revised and updated to take account of the major changes in global terrorism over the past five years.
Jonathan Barker presents a highly accessible history of terrorism, looking at examples from the Middle East and elsewhere, instances of state terrorism, and the terrorist fringes of political movements. He also delves beneath the surface, offering political and moral analysis of the causes and contexts of terrorism, the theories that justify and guide terrorist acts, and the battle of images that accompanies them. And in analyzing the dynamics of terrorism, Barker scrutinizes the "war on terror" and its fateful consequences for political participation and real democracy.
About the author: Jonathan Barker is Professor Emeritus of Political Science at the University of Toronto. He is the author of several books including the first edition of the No-Nonsense Guide to Terrorism (2003).

The New Internationalist brings to life the people, the ideas and the action in the fight for global justice.
The No-Nonsense Guides are the most accessible and enjoyable means for people with hurried lives to find out how the world really works.
This book is an excellent contribution to our understanding of the issues ... it should be required reading for any western security analyst, policy adviser or politician concerned in any way with responding to the events of 11 September 2001.
New Internationalist weighs the world on the scales of justice. By tapping into a vast global network of activists, the compassionately written and tightly edited magazine breathes life into the struggles, projects, and people who are working to build a better planet.
People these days almost crave information that helps them to make sense of the world, and the New Internationalist magazine does that brilliantly.
New Internationalist supports Fair Trade producers like Mahaguthi Craft with a Conscience. Fair Trade promotes a fair wage and fair working conditions, encouraging developing world producers to help themselves.
A little about Mahaguthi Craft with a Conscience: Mahaguthi Craft supports the development of micro-enterprises and helps disadvantaged producers improve their quality of life in Nepal.
New Internationalist Australia is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization, which means we have to stock a percentage of Fair Trade products, and also adhere to Fair Trade practices ourselves. Great for supporting producers rights, and also for our staff.
