Richard English`s Book is a great work on the terrorism and counterterrorism subject.

It is a reference work for students and academics who work on the area.

Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Confusion and Interest, 30 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Terrorism: How to Respond (Paperback)
The author certainly has a very good 'take' on terrorism. The book gives a very important perspective of the causes of terrorism and uses Northern Ireland as a good example. The confusion bit involves not the author but the book itself: the page numbers jump from 82 back to 35. Page 83 can be found after the second page 82. There is a list of plates in the front of the book but alas no pictures in the book. I would have enjoyed the pictures for the sake of nostalgia and wonder if the content has been mixed up during construction of the book. It is a pity but I shall live in hope of finding a correctly assembled copy eventually.

I bought this is preparation for a PhD proposal and it proved to be invaluable. Prof Richard English is the terrorism scholar's scholar. An excellent book - a great price and worth everypenny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good read, 26 Feb 2013

This review is from: Terrorism: How to Respond (Paperback)
Very interesting and well written. A really good read. Particularly interesting are the points Richard English identified where we can learn from the experience in Northern Ireland. Quite a small book but it has a lot to say.

5.0 out of 5 stars A rare work of genius, 2 Sep 2009
By 
P. A. Duffy - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
A superlative piece of scholarship which not only escapes but refutes the Neoconservative terrorist ideology to embrace the subject in the concrete moment of history. Professor English's work is a much needed corrective to the theoretical, idealist and ideological fog in which so much academic studies of the subject have been engulfed. One can only hope that this book will find a large readership in the corridors of power in Whitehall and beyond. Buy it, read it.
