Rogue Regimes: Terrorism and Proliferation

Rogue Regimes: Terrorism and Proliferation Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

During the Cold War, the Soviet Union served as the predictable adversary of the U.S. government. Now that the Cold War has ended, a threat which matches the scope of the USSR is no longer believed to exist, but still smaller countries continue to torment U.S. leaders. The governments of these countries are considered the outlaws of the international system, whether due to their support for terrorism or their interest in nuclear weapons. In Rogue Regimes, Raymond Tanter explores U.S. foreign policy with regard to nations such as Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Libya, uncovering the reasons why these countries are so menacing to the United States. This updated and expanded paperback also includes a new chapter on Iraq that discusses policy options, such as "containment with overthrow," in light of scenarios for the future ofthis rogue state. The book concludes with a chapter on "Rogue Regimes, Contractors, and Freelancers." It discusses the practice of terrorism and proliferation across regimes like Iraq, formal groups like the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, and freelnacers like Osama bin Laden who is suspected of masterminding the bombing of American embassies in Africa.
