This book critically and comparatively examines the responses of the United Nations and a range of countries to the terror attacks on September 11, 2001. It assesses the convergence between the responses of Western democracies including the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia and Canada with countries with more experience with terrorism including Egypt, Syria, Israel, Singapore and Indonesia. A number of common themes - the use of criminal law and immigration law, the regulation of speech associated with terrorism, the review of the state's whole of government counter-terrorism activities, and the development of national security policies - are discussed. The book provides a critical take on how the United Nations promoted terrorism financing laws and listing processes and the regulation of speech associated with terrorism but failed to agree on a definition of terrorism or the importance of respecting human rights while combating terrorism.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The scope and ambition of this book is daunting - its scale is magisterial, its attention to detail and the depth of its analysis are truly impressive ... It is very much to be hoped that there will be future editions, partly because it is in the nature of the very fast moving field of counter-terrorism that some of its observations risk becoming out of date and, more importantly, because it seems quite improbable that anyone else could surpass Roach's masterly achievement.' Lucia Zedner, University of Toronto Law Journal
"Encyclopedic and eminently readable, Kent Roach's The 9/11 Effect casts a cold eye on the failures of counterterrorism policies since 9/11. Providing essential historical and political context, Roach's survey stands alone in its mastery of the comparative framework for understanding the unique trade-offs between law and security policy. It is a must read for anyone in the field of counterterrorism studies." - Karen J. Greenberg Executive Director, Center on Law and Security, New York University Law School
"Professor Roach is one of the world's leading writers and thinkers on using the law to prevent and respond to terrorism. In this book he not only dissects the many thousands of pages of new law enacted after September 11, but manages to speak with authority and insight about the responses of nations around the world. This is a much-needed book because the big questions about anti-terror law cannot be answered within the boundaries of any one nation. They call for just the sort of analysis that Professor Roach undertakes in this important work." - George Williams Anthony Mason Professor, Scientia Professor, Faculty of Law, The University of New South Wales
"Unexpected and enlightening ... The unique legal gymnastics performed by the United States to justify its wars in the Middle East and the changes to its intelligence and interrogation policy have tended to concentrate analysts's attention. Kent Roach's new book, however, takes us well beyond these confines. ... The book should also bid fair to become a leading text on this newly important area of the law." - Tracy Lightcap Law and Politics Book Review br>
