RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 275152807 LA English T1 Terrorism, instability, and democracy in Asia and Africa A1 Cox, Dan G., Falconer, John W.,, Stackhouse, Brian., PB Northeastern University Press ; University Press of New England PP Boston; Hanover, NH YR 2009 SN 9781555537050 1555537057 9781584657545 1584657545 AB "There is a flourishing and growing debate among political scientists regarding the links between democracy/democratization and terrorism. Terrorism, Instability, and Democracy in Asia and Africa takes a regional approach to the issue, focusing on two areas sorely underrepresented in the literature but which grew ever more topical." "Beginning with definitions and a literature review, the authors present and interpret statistical analysis and case studies of nations in the Horn of Africa; sub-Saharan Africa; and Central, East, South, and Southeast Asia. This is a timely book that will fill a gaping hole in terrorism literature, just as the world is becoming increasingly attuned to domestic, international, and regional terrorist threats emanating from Asia and Africa. Academics, students, and policy experts in the fields of American, Asian, African, and international affairs and terrorism will embrace this crucial volume."--Jacket.
