Terrorism in Asymmetric Conflict: Ideological and Structural Aspects
by Ekaterina A. Stepanova
Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA 2008
Number of pages: 200
This thought-provoking book challenges the conventional discourse on—and responses to—contemporary terrorism. It examines the synergy between the extremist ideologies and the organizational models of non-state actors that use terrorist means in asymmetrical conflict. This synergy is what makes these terrorist groups so resilient in the face of the counterterrorist efforts of their main opponents—the state and the international system—who are conventionally far more powerful.
