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).

Commendations

The No-Nonsense Guides are the most accessible and enjoyable means for people with hurried lives to find out how the world really works.

George Monbiot, journalist, campaigner and author of Heat - How to Stop the Planet Burning

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.

Paul Rogers, Professor of Peace Studies, Bradford University, UK

The magazine is a secular publication. Readers, both Christian and non-Christian, may not always agree with all its conclusions. But it is an excellent catalyst for better informed thought and action. It pulls no punches yet at the same time is written with sensitivity and compassion ... could be of immense help in our becoming more globally aware and responsible citizens.

Gil Cann, editor, Working Together (published by the Australian Evangelical Alliance)

I am eager not to miss a single issue of your always informative and thought-provoking publication.

L. Monaghan, Qld - New Internationalist subscriber
