The Faces of Terrorism: Social and Psychological Dimensions (Science Essentials)
Neil J. Smelser's The Faces of Terrorism is a well-reasoned and comprehensive discussion about terrorism and counterterrorism...Smelser also discusses the factors contributing to the decline of terrorist groups, the dependence by terrorist groups on constant publicity, measures that are effective in countering terrorism and the impact of terrorism on a targeted society. -- Joshua Sinai, Washington Times[The Faces of Terrorism is a] comprehensive and readable look at the nature of terrorism. Smelser's book is comprehensive -- and disturbing. He demonstrates both the complexity of terrorism and the simplistic nature of our leaders' view of it. At the core of his argument is the contention that suppressing minorities gives rise to ideologies that see violence as the only means of redressing grievances. Smelser laments the simplistic, jingoistic response to the problem--one abetted, he says, by media that should know better. -- Bob Braun, Newark Star-LedgerSmelser, a leading social scientist, turns his attention to the topic [of terrorism] with valuable results. After 9/11...he took the view that social scientists ought to offer fresh approaches that sidestep partisan politician debates. The resulting book is valuable not only because of Smelser's shrewd judgments but also because he draws on such a wide literature. A couple of nice touches are his use of personal experiences to illuminate key issues and his identification of a number of 'entrapments,' apparently intractable debates in which analysis can get snarled up--for example, the debate over the tradeoffs between fighting terrorism and protecting civil liberties. -- Lawrence D. Freedman, Foreign AffairsSmelser focuses on the real core of [terrorism]: it reveals the multifaceted psychology of the actors and victims of terrorist activities. It is an excellent book, a real must-read for anyone interested in the subject. -- Waldemar Hanasz, MetapsychologyWorld-renowned sociologist and expert on terrorist violence Smelser offers an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the causes and conditions of terrorism, its perpetrators, their motives and operational strategies, and policy responses. He synthesizes behavioral and social science research and builds general explanations of unconventional violence. In particular, chapters on the causes and conditions of terrorism, its ideological bases, and motivational factors give the book a thoroughness that makes it an unrivaled study in the field. . . . Written in highly accessible language for both general and specialized audiences. -- T. Niazi, University of Wisconsin, for "Choice[This] book presents an invaluable and unique contribution to the understanding of terrorism and its outcomes. . . . [It] should become essential reading for students of terrorism. . . . Smelser's observations contribute significantly to a debate that has accompanied the study of terrorism since it first emerged. -- Ami Pedahzur, Perspectives on PoliticsWell argued and with such broad appeal, Smelser's contribution to understanding terrorism is important, complete and required reading for anyone examining the issue that, ten years after 9/11, remains at the top of the international political agenda. -- Dylan Kissane, Journal of Global Analysis
