Review: Philip B. Heymann, Terrorism, freedom and security: Winning without war

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article review

Abstract

During 2004, terrorism's profile as a matter of international concern has continued
to rise. The world has already witnessed the report of the US 9/11 Commission, the
Abu Ghraib torture revelations, the Madrid bombings, the arrest in the UK of the
radical Muslim cleric Abu-Hamza al Masri, the publication of works by former top
anti-terrorism advisor Richard Clarke1 (Against All Enemies: Inside America's War
on Terror), the US Supreme Court decision concerning the rights of Guantanamo
Bay prisoners (Rasul et al v Bush),2 the release of Michael Moore's film Fahrenheit
9/11 and an advocacy of torture warrants by Alan Dershowitz.3 It therefore seems
particularly timely to review Philip Heymann's book which questions the very
viability of a so-called 'war' on terrorism.
