ABSTRACT
The book "The Great Terror War," by Richard Falk, provides a much-needed examination of attacks on the World Trade Centre linking them to, while distinguishing them from, the breadth of more traditional forms of terrorism that have tormented the world since the Cold War and before. The author also identifies what is profoundly new and different about this form of terrorism, namely its global reach and its adoption by hidden, non-state actors relying on methods of mega-terrorism. He goes on to provide new insights into the entire range of issues that must be addressed if terrorism is to be eradicated, from the creation and strengthening of international legal tribunals with powerful enforcement capabilities, to the changing of U.S. policies that result in political marginalisation across the globe.
