Lenard offers a powerful account of how states should respond domestically to terrorism. Well researched, precisely written, extremely thoughtful, and compelling, this is an outstanding book. James Pattison, University of Manchester As well as making a highly original contribution to the theoretical debates on counterterrorism, this outstanding book guides the reader skilfully through the relevant literature and uses real-world examples to engagingly illustrate its main points. Recommended. Isaac Taylor, The Alan Turing Institute Reading Patti Lenard's book is like sitting down with a wise and learned friend who carefully, calmly, yet succinctly, guides the reader in how to think fairly and rationally about one of the greatest challenges to liberal democratic states: who to respond to the phenomenon of domestic and international terrorism without corroding the fundamental values that those states claim as definitive. To travel so far and so deep in so few pages, and to do it with such clarity, is truly an achievement. Audrey Macklin, University of Toronto
