This work outlines the important considerations of policy that confront a democratic state in trying to combat terrorism and at the same time remain democratic. Part I of this book, provides the reader with a comprehensive introduction to the definition, history, theory, operation and effects of terrorism as an essential background to policy analysis. Part II analyses counter-terrorist policies. It begins by outlining basic policy choices and then looks at specific policy areas such as the role of intelligence agencies, the use of the armed forces, the development of anti-terrorist legislation and international treaties, and the issue of regulation of media reporting of terrorist incidents. Developments in the strategic dimension of terrorism are discussed in chapters on the importance of hostage takings to international terrorism and issues surrounding state involvement in international terrorism. In the preparation of this second edition, Grant Wardlaw has considerably expanded the second part of the book, focusing firmly upon the international policy consequences of prevalent developments within international terrorism.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This is an outstanding book, a worthy successor to Pual Wilkinson's Terrorism and the Liberal State, containing a concise, comprehensive, sensible and liberal analysis of its subject.' The Times Literary Supplement
'Grant Wardlaw had authored a splendid text that will be of equal value to those in the station-house or in the seminar room. Through fine writing and insightful observations, he has surveyed the major areas in the study of terrorism ... Political Terrorism is an outstanding book, one that should be assigned as a required text for classes on the topic.' American Political Science Review
