The Global Threat of Terrorism: Perspectives from China

By Wang Yizhou

Contributions by: Zhang Yidan

The rise of terrorism has become a major factor in the destabilization of global structures since the end of the Cold War. Large-scale, highly impactful terrorist attacks have occurred nearly every year and even every month since the 1990s. Many countries, regardless of their stability or volatility, have been hit by this new wave of terrorist tactics. The book analyses the underlying conflicts in the current international regime and argues that eliminating terrorism requires new security thoughts and strategies. The book aims to deepen the current debates on international terrorism and inspire new thoughts. It comprehensively includes leading Chinese scholars' readings and interpretation on international terrorism. [Subject: Security Studies, Terrorism, Politics]
