Since 2011 attacks that sow terror in the hearts of people all over the world have increased significantly, both in their frequency and intensity. Victims of these
attacks have also increased, in the West and, more specifically, elsewhere. Is there
indeed a war of terror, as many political leaders would have the world believe?
In his 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 shows the fundamental differences over key concepts such as
existence, time, development and violence.
Bob de Graaf, senior lecturer in Intelligence and Security Studies at Utrecht
University Highly recommended for anyone wanting to explore the notion of security.
Fulco van Deventer, founding member of the Human Security Collective.
Peter Knoope is the former director of the International Center for Contraterrorism
and senior visiting fellow at the Clingendael Insititute. In Terror, Colonialism and Capital, he draws on a lifetime’s experiences to present a deeply personal perspective on the phenomenon of terrorism in the modern world.
