The attacks on Mumbai on 26 November 2008 brought home to Indians the full horror of terrorism. It also brought home, quite literally, the change in the contemporary face of war. War today is no longer confined to battle fields; it is right here. How is India equipped to deal with this menace which has been described as an 'ultramodern, and a very traditional, conspiracy'? In this collection of essays, nine eminent experts-strategic analysts and military historians-examine, among other issues, the capacity of India's police and paramilitary forces to deal with well-equipped, meticulously planned terror attacks, the army's ability to transform its 'reactive mode' to a more proactive approach and the complex dynamics of the nuclear terror threat. And, the big question, if elements within the Pakistani establishment are involved in the threat to India, what is the most effective way for the Indian state to respond? This collection illuminates one of the most burning issues facing Indians today.

This book examines the response to right-wing extremism in the US from both the government and non-governmental organisations. It provides a detailed portrait of the contemporary extreme right in the US including interviews with several of the movement's leading figures from groups such as the Ku Klux Klan, Militias, American Renaissance and the White Aryan Resistance. The author also explains how the activities of these racist groups have been curbed due to the campaigning efforts of anti-racist and anti-fascist watchdogs who have helped to shape and influence government policy.
Historically, countering terrorism has been something that security services have carried out on behalf of the state, without community consultation or consent. Since 9/11 however, this tradition has increasingly been questioned and the idea that communities have the potential to defeat al Qaeda - related or influenced terrorism has gained ascendency across policy, security and other contexts. Based on research in the US, Britain and Northern Ireland, this book examines the involvement of Muslim and other communities in terror crime prevention work, exploring the complexities of community involvement as well as its advantages and examining how trusting relationships between police, security services and communities can be built.
Terror grips the South American country of Colonia as retired US diplomat John Pauley returns to his old embassy. He is adviser to the chairman of a congressional committee charged with investigating the justice now promised by a government by a government strengthened by a new election. John Pauley must reluctantly abandon his role in an amateur production of Shakespeares Coriolanus when the chairman requests his help. The chairman brings with him his staff assistant Gail Arthur. Terrorist chaos reigns as the three arrive. The terrorists dispute the new trials of previous defendants charged with human rights violations including the murder of an American girl. The Americans find haven in the residence of the US ambassador in Juan de Sols, Garfield Jameson, the assistant ambassador when John was stationed there. Spencer Rawson, a callow and unpopular junior officer at the embassy, is kidnaped, perhaps to coerce the embassy into withdrawing its strong support for the government crackdown. The foreign ministry obtains his release. Inevitably he and Gail find much in common. Crack journalist Manuela Alvarez sees the significance of the increase in terror, the governments moves to confront it and the abduction of the American. . Echoing Shakespeare, the army puts down a resurrection led by Alfredo, the leader of the rebels who call themselves vulcanos, from the Spanish for vulcan, the Roman god of fire. Federico Morales courageously and skillfully leads the government forces in a decisive defeat of Alfredo and the vulcanos. Morales is lionized for his victory and offered the honorific Caudillo, or leader, a long-unused title. Morales balks at the proffered title, unable to muster the required humility the occasion demands. He insults the officials offering award of the title and ends up castigated as an enemy of the people. Morales flees to Alfredo and joins his rebel troops for a planned assault on the capital. John, Manuela, the chairman and Spencer turn up in Coriola where the rebels are preparing for their attack on the capital. Comfortable in a deserted motel, the four are incommunicado while the preparations progress. Spencer doesnt mind as long as he can be with Manuela. One of his kidnappers, the young Pedro, turns up at the motel as liaison between the rebels and the embassy group. Spencer soon sees Pedro as a rival for Manuela. One of his old mentors, Mendoza, visits Moraless mother and begs for her intercession to forestall the impending bloodbath. He succeeds, she does and Morales goes to the capital. There he achieves a peace treaty. Alfredo and the other rebels greet the treaty with hostility. They fall upon Morales, brutally killing him. Manuela gets the whole story from Pedro, an eyewitness. The rebels melt away. The embassy four return to the capital. Gail is curious about the room arrangements at the Coriola motel and the role Pedro played in their adventure. Spencer rediscovers Gail. Federico Moraless brother Gabriel, awaiting retrial for the murder of the American embassy daughter, hangs himself in his prison cell. The rebels are badly split over what do do next. Discipline decays. A majority favor a peace treaty; this causes the militant minority to walk out, vowing to wage war on the appeasers as well as the government. Left behind by the dispersing vulcanos, poor Pedro has no place to go. He tries Manuelas apartment but finds her husband has returned. The embassy four lend him money and Spencer helps him find a job in garage. The terror continues at a low level, but with the Morales brothers both dead, John, the chairman and Gail prepare to leave Colonia. The ambassador holds a farewell dinner at which Manuelas husband sings. Spencer and Gail part with vows of meeting again. Home again, John laments that he missed the performance of Coriolanus with his youthful understudy but then decides he was in the play more down in Colonia than i
