Faces of State Terrorism
Terrorism is usually discussed as the actions of individuals. This book argues that Governments carry out most acts of terrorism.
Terrorism, a widespread global phenomenon, manifests itself in the actions and the policies of individuals and groups, but also and primarily in the actions and policies of states. Delving into the seldom-discussed question of the motivation for most episodes of terrorism, this book studies terrorism’s effects based on the economic and geopolitical imbalances that frame today's global governance.
