ABSTRACT
The article presents information on books related to terrorism. The book "A World Challenged: Fighting Terrorism in the Twenty-First Century," by Yevgeny M. Primakov, is a collaborative effort between the Nixon Center and the Brookings Institution Press presenting a candid, sobering account of the menacing threat to international security posed by disparate terrorist organizations. Book "The Lesser Evil: Political Ethics in an Age of Terror," by Michael Ignatieff, attempt to outline a middle way for a democratic response to the current terrorist threat. Ignatieff suggests that any loss of the freedoms and rights provided by a democracy must be only temporary in nature and absolutely necessary to ensure security.
