In analysing issues confronting the nation, the scourge of terrorism, that has injected a sense of despondency in India, must be one of the prime objectives for any think tank. Study and analysis of this problem is therefore one of the key focus areas among the scholars and venerated mentors in the Vivekananda International Foundation (VIF), New Delhi, India`s premier think tank on strategic affairs. Towards that end, the VIF has been engaged in consistent dissection of the phenomenon of terrorism and undertaken to propagate measures that are necessary to protect the societal peace and stability against the lure of terrorism.

This book is a compilation of twelve of the essays which have been penned over the past couple of years by the VIF scholars under the guidance of leading strategic thinkers. Each of these essays is representative of one facet of terrorism or the other and accordingly picked to be compiled as one book.  The purpose is to dispense, in one volume, various facets of understanding that would play vital role in gaining control of the phenomenon of terrorism.

ABOUT Author


Vivekananda International Foundation (VIF) is a non-partisan institute for dialogue on national concerns, analyses of policy options and management of challenging issues from a nationalist perspective. It is an assembly of some of India`s leading expert in the fields of national security, military, diplomacy, governance, etc. who have committed under the aegis of the institute to generate ideas and stimulate actions for greater national security and prosperity.

Independently funded, VIF is not aligned to any political party or business house. Neither is it committed to any defined line of thinking but to remain cognisant to what its nationally and internationally venerated members consider to be the best for national good and best governance. It performs its charter through regular confabulations with globally regarded think tanks and venerated thinkers of the time, both national and global. Well regarded among leading think tanks, the Foundation also organises regular interactions with key policy makers of various nations with the purpose of promoting mutual understanding, strengthening friendship and reconciling differences.
