Chandler and Gunaratna are among the world's foremost experts on international terrorism, having logged between them over 40 years of firsthand experience in the field and planning rooms, analyzing and dealing with an unceasing succession of terrorist threats and conflicts. They employ their unparalleled expertise to probe the catastrophic attacks so indelibly seared into the history of the early 21st century, from 9/11 to the Madrid bombings to deadly strikes in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Palestine, and elsewhere. They ask the hard questions. Why has the overall response to terrorism after 9/11 been so abysmal, slow, piecemeal, and far from effective? Why have some countries, despite international criticism, disregarded universally accepted humanitarian norms when handling the prosecution of terrorist suspects? By allowing politics to trump the need for transnational cooperation, the international community, and particularly the United States, has squandered an opportunity to combat terrorism with a united and powerful force. They present clear and concise proposals for future dealings with global terrorism. ISBN: 9781861893086. Our Book No: 19961. $15 AUD.

In this ground-breaking Australian book, international writers, scholars and commentators shed light on some of the most pressing human rights and public policy challenges of our time. Contributors include thinkers of Muslim background with extensive personal experience in developing countries, and Western writers of both secular and religious (mainly Christian) orientation. Essays deal with the human rights of Muslims and non-Muslims alike, in areas ranging from women's rights to freedom on religion. Another focus is on the challenges of adaptation that immigrant Muslim communities in the West face, as do non-Muslims as they seek to understand and come to terms with different Muslim world views. Contentious areas of debate such as the sources of religious violence, and the implications of so-called Islamisation, are not avoided but addressed with openness, honesty and candour. Other specific topics include multi-faith dialogue, Islamic finance, and the nature of Islamic law (Sharia). The book concludes with a set of practical, concrete recommendations for individuals directly involved in setting relevant public policies. ISBN: 9780908284764. Our Book No: 13831. $80 AUD.
