Anmeldelser

«This book has a pretty graphic cover that puffs the advancement of a technologically-savvy military as the solution to terrorism.»

Pennsylvania Literary Journal

«This is a judicious and precisely conceptualised approach to a subject as important and elusive as terrorism itself, but seldom examined so carefully. Policymakers and public alike need to understand why some methods are effective and others are the opposite. This book should become the leading study of this dangerously neglected topic.»

Charles Townshend, FBA, author of Terrorism: A Very Short Introduction

«A timely and thorough reassessment of the modern 'war on terror'.»

History of War

«A thoughtful and authoritative analysis ... Richard English has dedicated decades to the analysis of terrorism and to governments' efforts to overcome it. Given that the choices made in counter-terrorism policy impact directly upon each of us every day, it is a vitally important area of study.»

Ian Cobain, The Observer

«A masterful, concise analysis of counter-terrorism by comparing the post-9/11 War on Terror, the modern Northern Ireland Troubles and Israeli practice towards Palestine. ... Does Counter-Terrorism Work? is an acute guide for all who want to understand why the misery inherent in terrorism often cannot be expunged as quickly as we should like.»

Hew Bennett, Irish Times

«Judicious and thoughtful...fair and balanced, critical without being polemical,...relevant and timely. Part of its argument is that history is important, and I am in complete agreement.»

Martha Crenshaw, Senior Fellow Emerita, Stanford University Professor Emerita, Wesleyan University

«Richard English addresses a socio-politically relevant topic in his book, one that has not been tackled with such directness and clarity before. He guides readers through his thoughts in understandable language, critically evaluating his own theses with numerous examples. Therefore, the work is worth reading not only for its scholarly interest but also for its numerous excursions into the tactical uncertainties and political decision-making involved in counterterrorism efforts.»

Anton Hahn, Portal für Politikwissenschaft
