What is included with this book?


"In this volume an unusual array of elite scholars addresses the role of values in understanding terrorism and forming policies for responses to it. Their essays, which appear here for the first time, have significance in the fears and concerns of the moment but the enduring values they espouse extend far beyond terrorism."--BOOK JACKET.
