Item description for Defending the Homeland: Historical Perspectives on Radicalism, Terrorism, and State Responses by Melinda M. Hicks Melinda M. Hicks and C. Belmont Keeney...
Terrorism and national security have been in the foreground of the nation's political landscape since the uncertain times brought on by the attacks of September 11, 2001. This collection of scholarly essays provides a chance to learn from the past by offering an analytic and sometimes provocative look at the inseparability of security and history. Melinda M. Hicks and C. Belmont Keeney have collected ten essays written by academic scholars and presented at the 2005 U.S. Senator Rush D. Holt History Conference. These essays discuss the different responses to terrorism throughout history, covering such issues as national security, politics of fear, motivations of terrorists and radical groups, and foreign diplomacy. "Defending the Homeland" focuses on the faces of terrorism and national security at home and abroad, discussing not only the acts of terror but the motivations behind those acts and investigating under what circumstances individual liberty is sacrificed upon the altar of national security. Recommended for scholars, students, and the general public; intended to broaden knowledge of the history of radicalism, terrorism, and state responses to terrorist events.
