DescriptionContentsAuthors

In one provocative volume this book explores the UK experience in the 'war on terror' critically analyzing the 'war' discourse and ideas of the politics of panic as well as forensically examining the effectiveness of counter terrorist policies. The book examines the use and abuse of intelligence as a basis for policy, law making and criminal investigation, explores public order and how this affects protest and religious liberty, and studies the 'torture debate,' highlighted by discussion in the courts about whether the UK should accept evidence gained from torture. The book also provides a fascinating comparative perspective, focusing on Australia, Spain and the Netherlands.
