"This volume brings together many of the world's foremost experts on terrorism and counterterrorism, who begin the important process of developing a grand strategy to address contemporary, real-world threats."--Jessica Stern, author of "Terror in the Name of God: Why Religious Militants Kill" "Most studies of terrorism have been descriptive works about specific groups. The new priority of the problem heightens the need for policy-relevant literature that provides analytical, comparative, and functional assessments of policy instruments. This timely book does much to meet this need."--Richard K. Betts, Columbia University and the Council on Foreign Relations
