The expansion and escalation of global terrorism has left populations across the world and decision-makers responsible for contending with it unprepared. This book is the first attempt of its kind to create a manual of counter-terrorism measures on all the relevant operational levels. The author's main purpose is to give decision-makers the tools to make rational and effective decisions in both preventing and countering terrorism.
The need to contend with terrorism can be found in almost every sphere of life: security, prevention and suppression of terrorism, legal and ethical dilemmas regarding democratic issues, such as the individual's human rights, intelligence interrogations, the right of the public to know, as well as coping with social, psychological, and media-related issues.
Boaz Ganor is the deputy dean of Lauder School of Government, and is one of the founders of the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism (ICT) at the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya, and serves as its director.Review:
"This is one of the most original and important books ever written on terrorism and counterterrorism. For anyone wishing to understand terrorism's impact on society and how to counter it, The Counter-Terrorism Puzzle is indispensable."
—Joshua Sinai, Senior Terrorism Analyst, ANSER (Analytic Services)
"Finally a comprehensive and practical guide for busy counter-terrorism decision-makers! Boaz Ganor offers a comprehensive framework to help analysts and officials in dealing with all aspects of terrorism. His insights and advice on issues ranging from intelligence, deterrence, offensive and defensive actions, the media, legislative policies, psychological impact and international cooperation are both timely and important. A must read for all dealing with the phenomenon of terrorism!"
—Marc Sageman, author of Understanding Terror Networks.
"The Counter-Terrorism Puzzle fills an important gap in the literature. Although much has been written about terrorists and terrorism, until now no authoritative work has addressed the critical dimension of counter-terrorism. Although focused on Israel's experience, The Counter-Terrorism Puzzle is relevant to the dilemmas that all governments face in countering this menace."
—Bruce Hoffman, author of Inside Terrorism
