  3. The Political Economy of Destructive Power

    The Political Economy of Destructive Power

    Mehrdad Vahabi
    Economic science has extensively studied the creative power of individuals and social groups, but it has largely ignored the destructive power of economic agents. This highly original book redresses the balance and, for the first time, looks at how much an agent can destroy. Destructive power is conceptualised in a unique way, covering all types of deliberate (violent and non-violent) social conflict behaviour. The theoretical arguments in the book are skilfully linked to burning political issues of our time such as the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the Second Gulf War. Learn More

  5. Dealing with Terrorism – Stick or Carrot?

    Dealing with Terrorism – Stick or Carrot?

    Bruno S. Frey
    Emphasising a positive approach to dealing with terrorism (the carrot), this book provides a critique of deterrence policy (the stick) which can be ineffective and even counterproductive, and proposes three alternative and effective anti-terrorist policies: Decentralisation reduces vulnerability to terrorist attacks. A system with many different centres is more stable due to its diversity, enabling one part to substitute for another; Positive incentives can be offered to actual and prospective terrorists not to engage in violent acts. Incentives include: reintegrating terrorists into society, welcoming repentents and offering them valued opportunities; and Diverting attention by naming several terrorist groups potentially responsible for a particular terrorist act. The government thus supplies more information than the terrorist responsible would wish. Learn More

    Terrorism and the International Business Environment

    Edited by Gabriele Suder

It argues that corporate asset protection and accurate business risk assessment is vital to the longevity, and resilience of business. Learn More

  7. Regional Security in the Asia Pacific

    Regional Security in the Asia Pacific

    Edited by Marika Vicziany, David Wright-Neville, Pete Lentini
    The September 2001 terrorist attacks shocked the world. But what did they change? In this book Asia specialists from academe and policy think tanks assess the impact of 9/11 on the Asia Pacific. Drawing on unique fieldwork, access to a wide range of documents and inside expertise, the authors consider how old geo-strategic and cultural fault lines have been overlaid with new security threats from state and non-state actors. With chapters on specific countries and regions, defense policies, terrorism, and current and potential conflict zones, this collection critically examines the Asia Pacific region’s post-9/11, as well as post-Iraq war, security architecture.

  9. Globalisation and the New Terror

    Globalisation and the New Terror

    Edited by David M. Jones
    This rigorously analytical yet readable book examines trends in new terror – understood here to be the capacity of sub-state actors to secure religious or politically motivated objectives by violent means. The contributors argue that whilst the use of violence to achieve political ends is scarcely original, what distinguishes new terror is its potential for lethality. This, combined with its evolving capacity to draw upon the resources of globalisation, particularly the revolution in communications which has advanced global markets, has also rendered them, and the more developed core states in the international trading order, increasingly vulnerable to asymmetric threats.
