"Terrorists' strength derives from the difficulty in defining the term terrorism itself ... Whether terrorism represents a resurgent barbarism to be combatted by all civilization or a new and legitimate mode of armed conflict remains a topic of debate. The debate is reflected in this volume, the collective product of 43 authors ... The anthology ... presents a kaleidoscope of philosophies, prejudices, and purposes ... [and is] an ... illustration of how the world addresses the topic of terrorism and incidentally why terrorism persists"--P. xix-xx.
