China's problem with terrorism has historically been considered an outgrowth of Beijing's efforts to integrate the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region into the People's Republic of China. Since the end of the Cold War, however, this internal dynamic has converged with an evolving external environment, stimulating the development of linkages between Uyghur separatism and terrorism and broader terrorist movements in Central Asia, South Asia and the Middle East. This book brings together some of the leading experts on Chinese terrorism, offering the first systematic, scholarly assessment of the country's approaches to this threat. Four areas of investigation are looked at: the scope and nature of terrorism in China and its connection with developments in other regions; the development of legislative measures to combat terrorism; the institutional evolution of China's counter-terrorism bureaucracy; and Beijing's counter-terrorism cooperation with international partners.

Rethinking Civilization offers an alternative view of human civilization in a globalizing age. Majid Tehranian analyses the transition from nomadic, to agrarian, commercial, industrial, and digital civilizations and argues that the growing gaps among the five major civilizations have led to terror operating as a form of global communication. This new book explores the uneven pace of development of human societies, particularly in the last two centuries, and argues that this is leading to a global civil war. Taking a long-term historical perspective, and developing a model that explains how empires, resistance, and civilizations have evolved alongside major technological breakthroughs in history, Tehranian offers a multi-cultural and multi-disciplinary analysis of the phenomenon. Seeking to counter the current rhetorical trends, Tehranian reconceptualizes "civilization" to make it a useful analytical rather than ideological category. defines the varieties of terrorism, including structural, nuclear, state, opposition, messianic, and anomic. addresses the contemporary problems of global governance and the evolution of international relations. traces the evolution of global communication from orality to literacy, print, electronic, and digital modes. forecasts the emerging problems of encounters among the five civilizations. This unique and original volume will be of great interest to students and researchers of globalization, international relations, peace studies and sociology.

Das Phnomen der "Asymmetrischen Kriegsfuhrung" ist nicht neu; erste Hinweise finden sich bereits im Alten Testament. Aktuellere Beispiele sind der Vietnam-Krieg oder der Krieg der Mujaheddin gegen die sowjetischen Truppen in Afghanistan. Von den nach 1945 gefuhrten Kriegen waren allenfalls ein Drittel zwischenstaatliche Kriege im herkmmlichen Sinne ("Symmetrische Konfliktentwicklung"). In der asymmetrischen Kriegfuhrung stehen sich sehr ungleiche Gegner gegenuber, wobei die eine Seite der Anderen mit minimalem Aufwand einen maximalen Schaden zufugen mchte. Diese Form der Kriegsfuhrung wird in Zukunft die Norm militrischer Auseinandersetzungen werden. Dies hat nicht nur Konsequenzen auf die kunftige Struktur und Ausbildung der Streitkrfte sowie deren Einsatzdispositive, sondern auch auf die (internationale) Sicherheits- und Verteidigungspolitik allgemein. Die Studie gibt einen umfassenden berblick zu dieser komplexen Thematik, die dem state-of-the-art entspricht, und welche sowohl theoretische Aspekte als auch Fallbeispiele umfasst. Ebenfalls wird ein Ausblick auf die weitere Entwicklung von asymmetrischer Kriegsfuhrung gegeben, der nicht nur weitere Forschungsfragen beinhalten wird, sondern auch als Orientierungshilfe und Background fur politische und militrische Entscheidungstrger dienen soll.

The USA Patriot Act One is of the most controversial and possibly one of the most misunderstood laws Congress has ever enacted. For many Americans, it is synonymous with an egregious and unjustifiable suspension of the Bill of Rights. Others, troubled but more cautious, identify the Patriot Act with the grant of unprecedented powers that put civil liberties at some risk. Many who reject these concerns nonetheless accept their underlying assumption--that the Patriot Act does indeed give the federal government a package of powerful new search and surveillance tools. In Rethinking the Patriot Act, Stephen J. Schulhofer explains the act's most important provisions and reviews the best information currently available to gauge their usefulness and their effects in practice. Contrary to conventional wisdom, Schulhofer argues that much of the Patriot Act was essential, and some of it, if not essential, was reasonably defensible. In fact, the act includes provisions--seldom noticed--that add new protections for certain civil liberties, extend new benefits to certain immigrant groups, and provide new remedies for violations of individual rights. Nonetheless, Schulhofer concludes, many of the act's new powers are far too broad, and even where the case for broad powers is strong, they were typically conferred with little effort to assure transparency and accountability.

This edited collection critically analyzes the concept of "terrorism," the Canadian and American government responses to terrorist activity since the events of 9/11 and the problem of government policies infringing on basic human rights and freedoms. The authors direct their attention to various topics including the relationship between the capitalist economic system and the war on terror, the legality and efficacy of the Anti-Terrorism Act and the USA PATRIOT Act, and the insecurities created by the new security regime. The conclusion of this book highlights the need for an informed public debate about security and for society to question and re-examine the need for enhanced security measures, particularly when such processes counter democratic values.

Terrorism and the State

This book analyzes the legal principles that govern state responsibility for the conduct of non-state actors and examines their relevance and effectiveness in an increasingly interconnected world.

The alarming rise in international terrorist activity since the attacks of September 11th has generated intense debate about the principles by which state responsibility for private acts of terrorism is determined in international law. This book analyzes the legal principles that govern state responsibility for the conduct of non-state actors and examines their relevance and effectiveness in an increasingly interconnected world. The book argues that traditional approaches to determining the state's legal responsibility for violations of these counter-terrorism obligations lack conceptual coherence, fail to enhance state accountability for protecting civilians from private violence and are poorly suited to coping with today's terrorist threat. Drawing on a wide array of precedents and legal sources, the study offers a novel approach to regulating state responsibility for private violence that is grounded in principles of causation. The book argues that causation-based state responsibility for terrorism can be reconciled with the International Law Commission's Draft Articles on State Responsibility and offers a conceptual and legal framework that is better equipped to deal with the subtle interactions between state and non-state actors that make contemporary terrorism possible. 'Terrorism and the Stateâ?? by Tal Becker has won the Guggenheim Prize for 2007.

This edited volume, re-issued under the Marshall Cavendish Academic imprint, seeks to explore how the phenomenon of terrorism has transformed from the Cold War to the post- Cold War period. The end of the East-West confrontation created the conditions for terrorist and guerrilla groups to operate globally, advancing their aims and objectives. By operating worldwide, they accessed new ideas, resources, and fresh opportunities. In addition to accumulating political influence and economic resources, they acquired specialized and dual technologies, and learned tactics and techniques from both the East and West. During this period, many rag-tag groups evolved into sophisticated groups. Benefiting from the rapidly changing environment, the phenomenon of terrorism transformed regionally and functionally.
