1. The Deadly Sin of Terrorism: Its Effect on Democracy and Civil Liberties in Six Countries. Westport, CT: Greenwood, 1994.

Fukiyama, FA 74.3 (May-Jun. 1995), notes that this book compares antiterrorism campaigns in Britain, Germany, Italy, France, Israel, and the United States. Most of these countries have "managed to cope in ways that have not damaged their democratic credentials.... The book suggests that the entire terrorist problem has been oversold by the media, both as a problem and as a threat to democracy." Choice, May 1995, comments that this "collection offers a good start toward a comparative analysis of terrorism, viewed mainly from the governmental perspective."

2. Democratic Responses to International Terrorism. Ardsley-on-Hudson, NY: Transnational Publishers, 1991.

Everett, MI 18.3, calls this book a "cornerstone reference about terrorism.... [Its] focus is Canada.... The chapter on 'Counterterrorism Intelligence' is one of the most useful." According to Robertson, I&NS 10.1, "most of the essays are quite wide-ranging." That, however, occasions "some disappointment," because too many of the essays "contribute little that is new or exciting."
