Ethics and Liberal Democracy

Undoubtedly, the events of September 11, 2001 served as a wake-up
call to the scourge of global terrorism facing twenty-first century
societies. But was the attack on the World Trade Center a crime or
an act of war? Is seemingly indiscriminate violence inflicted on
civilians ever morally justified? And should society's response
always be in kind ? with blind, destructive violence? For
that matter, are all civilians truly ?innocent?? The
answers are not always so simple.

Terrorism and Counter-Terrorism: Ethics and Liberal
Democracy
provides sobering analyses of the nature of
terrorism and the moral justification ? or lack thereof
? of terrorist actions and counter-terrorism measures in
today's world. Utilizing a variety of thought-provoking
philosophical arguments, the historic roots of terrorism and its
contemporary incarnations are explored in depth. Detailed analyses
of organizations such as the IRA, the ANC, Hamas and Al-Qaeda will
reveal the many faces of terrorism and its disparate motives and
tactics. Discussion of the nature and scope of terrorism and
whether it can ever be morally justified is balanced with analysis
of counter-terrorism strategies and the methods and moral limits of
counter-terrorism.


Terrorism and Counter-Terrorism will greatly
broaden our understanding of the nature and morality of terrorism
and counter-terrorist pursuits ? a crucial precondition for
establishing any form of enduring peace between nations in the
twenty-first century world.
