About the Book

Author Amos N. Guiora compares the four aspects of counterterrorism-law, policy, intelligence gathering, and operational decisions-from the perspectives of five different countries: the United States, Spain, Russia, Israel, and India. With engaging writing and an interdisciplinary approach, Guiora illuminates a wide variety of timely issues, including interrogation, judicial review, international law, and the proper forum for trying terrorists.

A perfect complement to the study of international law, constitutional law, criminal law, national security law, and counterterrorism, Global Perspectives on Counterterrorism is ideal for anyone seeking insight and a broader perspective on a subject at once national and personal, offering:

  • Extensive comparative analysis of the counterterrorism efforts of five different nations
  • A rich selection of materials that includes case law, policy documents, and case studies
  • Highly engaging text supported by simulation exercises and suggested topics for discussion
  • Timely coverage of a range of issues from the ethical boundaries of interrogation to judicial review, international law, and the proper forum for trying terrorists
