Publisher Comments:

This is the first comprehensive discussion of all the main philosophical issues raised by terrorism against the background of its past and recent developments. Prominent philosophers discuss definitions of terrorism, approaches to its moral evaluation, and the contentious subject of state terrorism. Also included are four case studies, showing how the concepts and arguments philosophers deploy in discussing violence, war and terrorism apply to particular instances of both insurgent and state terrorism, ranging from World War II to September 11, 2001.

About the Author

Igor Primoratz is Professor of Philosophy at the Hebrew University, Jerusalem, and Principal Research Fellow, at the Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics, University of Melbourne.
