Peter Knoope, former Director of the International Centre for Counter-terrorism and Senior Visiting Fellow at the Clingendael Institute, presents his personal perspective on terrorism in the modern world.
"In this examination of the relationship between the West and the rest of the world, the author turns many dearly held Western assumptions on their heads. Peter Knoope convincingly illuminates the fundamental differences by examining key concepts such as existence, time, development and violence." Bob de Graaf, senior lecturer in Intelligence and Security Studies, Utrecht University
