About the Book
This book entitled, Terrorism, National Security and Economic Development; Challenges and Prospects, essentially deals with the various forms of terrorism, operating in different parts of the globe, irrespective of their socio-political affiliations and economic conditions. This comprehensive and critical study on terrorism strongly suggests that, unless the concept of terrorism is defined clearly, having the consensus of the international community, it will be well-neigh impossible to tackle this menace effectively and more importantly, within a given time-frame.
The in-depth investigation of terrorism operating in various forms in different parts of the globe throughout the history of human civilisation establishes beyond doubt that, terrorism is not an entirely new phenomenon. What is striking is that it is new only in its methods, styles and techniques of operation. Hence, to tackle it effectively, new strategy has to be devised. Major areas of study in this edition include, Concept of Terrorism, Genesis of International Terrorism, Linkage among Terrorism, National Security and Economic development and the strategy for combating cross-border terrorism.
