The war against terrorism has been at the forefront of U. S. foreign policy. Many people believe the United States should be more aggressive in combating terror. Others characterize the goal of eliminating terror as an impossibility. This volume explores the effectiveness of the tactics the United States uses against terrorists, the effect battling terrorism has on civil liberties in America, the impact of the war in Iraq, and whether the United States is prepared for another terrorist attack.
"This anthology includes essays that initially appeared in periodicals, newspapers, books, government documents, and public and private organizational publications...A balanced presentation for highly controversial views, the selections differ in style and polish; some are carefully reasoned, and others are emotionally charged. Three major sections explore the dimensions of the problem, its causes, and possible remedies. Pulling no punches, this title covers its subjects well. Useful for research, for reports, and for debates."
