'According to this marvelous new study, Talking to Terrorists... there are serious reasons to doubt that the model of conflict resolution relied on here is an accurate account of what actually happened in Northern Ireland.' ----The Weekly Standard
'This provocative book is a useful corrective to recent work on terrorism and conflict resolution. I believe it should be read by policymakers and practitioners, many of whom continue to be blinded by the apparent success of the Northern Ireland peace process and will benefit from the powerful counterarguments.' ----Stephen Hopkins, University of Leicester

Top Customer Reviews
The book does caution against drawing parallels between different circumstances -- everything is local, after all -- but the fact that even a brief read in the book will remind you of what is happening with international policy towards the Taliban at the moment is an indicator that there are at least lessons to be learnt here: ending political stalemate in the greater Kandahar area at the moment should be the single priority of any efforts to find `a solution', but doing so from a point of strategic bankruptcy will inevitably be to the detriment of everyone's long-term future.
As such, 'Talking to Terrorists: Making Peace in Northern Ireland and the Basque Country' is an absolute must-read for policy-makers who see a future (or an end-game) in the possibility of some sort of negotiated settlement with the Taliban.
