Product Description


"This is a provocative and important study of contemporary terrorism and counterterrorism; it is, in many ways, the best attempt yet to locate these phenomena within general international-relations theory and the workings of the international system. Mendelsohn not only provides a compelling explanation for variation in the degree of international cooperation against terrorism, but also makes an important contribution to how we theorize the institutions of international society."--Daniel H. Nexon, Georgetown University

--Daniel H. Nexon (02/02/2009)

"In this magnificent, deeply researched, and compelling book, Barak Mendelsohn succeeds in two difficult tasks. He provides a nuanced and richly detailed analysis of the rise of global jihadism and of the counter-strategies that states have adopted to defend themselves. Equally important, "Combating Jihadism" makes a major theoretical contribution by explaining the data within the framework of the English School of International Relations. This engaging book lifts the theoretical level of scholarship on terrorism to new heights."--Peter J. Katzenstein, Walter S. Carpenter, Jr. Professor of International Studies, Cornell University --Peter J. Katzenstein (03/02/2009)

"In "Combating Jihadism", Mendelsohn not only demonstrates a remarkable knowledge of the complex webs and networks which constitute the core of today's international terrorist threat, but he also effectively details how states have responded to such a challenge. Thus, this is one of the very few books written since the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks that bridges the gap between the study of contemporary global terrorism and international relations theory. As a result, it is sure to stimulate wide interest in both academic and policy making circles, and is destined to join the list of works that are required reading for any with an interest in the origins, development, and future of terrorism in the contemporary international system."--Allen Carlson, Cornell University
