 Overview

About the Book:

The basic argument of this book is that liberal democracy is a security imperative in today`s global security environment. Since terrorist groups change and evolve, the best way for states to win legitimacy vis-à-vis these organizations is by adhering to liberal democratic value, cooperating with other states, and applying prudent counterterrorist tactics. This book begins by analyzing five hotspot situations and their regional effects: the Basques in Spain, the ethnic Albanians in Macedonia, the Kurds in Turkey, the Chechens and Russia: and the Palestinians, Israelis, and a future Palestinian state.
