The rise of terrorism and the global response
`The first war of the 21st Century'. That was how President George W. Bush described the start of a fight against terror signalled by the attacks on America on September 11. Dilip Hiro's latest book provides the historical and political context to explain these acts of terror and the West's response. He also discusses the implications of the Bush Doctrine, encapsulated in his declaration, `so long as anybody is terrorising established governments, there needs to be a war' — a recipe for war without end. Exclusive extracts.
