What Terrorists Want

release date: Sep 05, 2006
What Terrorists Want
“This is at the top of my list for best books on terrorism.”–Jessica Stern, author of Terror in the Name of God: Why Religious Militants Kill How can the most powerful country in the world feel so threatened by an enemy infinitely weaker than we are? How can loving parents and otherwise responsible citizens join terrorist movements? How can anyone possibly believe that the cause of Islam can be advanced by murdering passengers on a bus or an airplane? In this important new book, groundbreaking scholar Louise Richardson answers these questions and more, providing an indispensable guide to the greatest challenge of our age. After defining–once and for all–what terrorism is, Richardson explores its origins, its goals, what’s to come, and what is to be done about it. Having grown up in rural Ireland and watched her friends join the Irish Republican Army, Richardson knows from firsthand experience how terrorism can both unite and destroy a community. As a professor at Harvard, she has devoted her career to explaining terrorist movements throughout history and around the globe. From the biblical Zealots to the medieval Islamic Assassins to the anarchists who infiltrated the cities of Europe and North America at the turn of the last century, terrorists have struck at enemies far more powerful than themselves with targeted acts of violence. Yet Richardson understands that terrorists are neither insane nor immoral. Rather, they are rational political actors who often deploy carefully calibrated tactics in a measured and reasoned way. What is more, they invariably go to great lengths to justify their actions to themselves, their followers, and, often, the world. Richardson shows that the nature of terrorism did not change after the attacks of September 11, 2001; what changed was our response. She argues that the Bush administration’ s “global war on terror” was doomed to fail because of an ignorance of history, a refusal to learn from the experience of other governments, and a fundamental misconception about how and why terrorists act. As an alternative, Richardson offers a feasible strategy for containing the terrorist threat and cutting off its grassroots support. The most comprehensive and intellectually rigorous account of terrorism yet, What Terrorists Want is a daring intellectual tour de force that allows us, at last, to reckon fully with this major threat to today’s global order.

The Greatness Within

release date: Jan 01, 2013
The Greatness Within
In 2008, Louise Richardson was taken ill with an ME type illness and a cerebral aneurysm. Her world came to an abrupt stop and everything she had worked hard for came crashing down around her. Louise thought that she had nothing to look forward to and felt very stuck in a situation, not of her choosing. She had a responsible job, money, lovely home and was studying for a degree. Just the previous month she had been travelling and had no indication of what was to come. Having spent a number of years within the confines of her home, Louise decided to take back control of her life and began, very slowly, to find things that she was able to attempt. Louise used poetry to escape her confines and to release her emotions and to finally see a light at the end of the tunnel. Along with poetry, Louise also paints and has revived her love of singing and dancing. She hopes that you find this book both interesting and helpful. Perhaps you are in a dark place at the moment and cannot see a way out, you just need some motivation or the knowledge that someone has the understanding and way forward for how you are feeling at this time. Whatever the reason, please enjoy the read!

Liberty and Power

release date: Jan 01, 2004
Liberty and Power
How a nation commits itself to freedom has long been at the heart of debates about foreign aid, economic sanctions and military intervention. Moral and faith traditions have much to say about what is required to achieve this end. And after September 11, no one can doubt the importance of religious beliefs in influencing relations among peoples and nations. to fanaticism, or do they encourage a new realism about the forces shaping the choices confronting the US? The contributors to this volume come at the issue from very different perspectives and offer exceptional and unexpected insights on a question now at the forefront of American foreign policy.

When Allies Differ

release date: Jan 01, 1996
When Allies Differ
How do the leaders of an alliance manage a situation in which their interests diverge from those of their allies? When Allies Differ focuses on two cases, the Suez crisis of 1956 and the Falklands war of 1982, in which the interests of two of the closest allies, namely Britain and the United States, clashed. The convincing analysis of the Suez crisis draws on recently declassified archival material and catalogs the extraordinary misunderstandings that brought the future of the Atlantic Alliance into question. Though the Falklands war is seen to have left the Alliance intact, Richardson argues that it damaged U.S. interests. Using extensive interviews with participants from both sides of the Atlantic, the author recreates the decisionmaking process used during the Falklands war and exposes the centrality of domestic bureaucratic politics in global diplomacy.

A Delicate Balance: Protecting the Environment and Strengthening Trade Through Controlling Aircraft Noise and Emissions

release date: Jan 01, 2001
A Delicate Balance: Protecting the Environment and Strengthening Trade Through Controlling Aircraft Noise and Emissions
International trade and environmental law present a difficult and delicate balance for the commercial airline industry. The weight of real-world trade and environmental issues constantly shift the balance in opposing regulatory and normative directions. For instance, the environmental realities of running an airport, ranging from noise control and air emissions to less publicized issues of chemical runoff and waste disposal, foment anti-airport sentiment in the public and impose significant fiscal burdens on the airport itself. Despite that, the speed and convenience of air travel and the cheaper ticket prices brought by deregulation has the same public clamoring for more flights to more places at more times of the day and night.
