This volume examines the lessons and legacies of the U.S.-led qGlobal War on Terror, q utilizing the framework of a political qmoral panic.q A decade after 9/11, it is increasingly difficult to deny that terror has prevailed a€“ not as a specific enemy, but as a way of life. Transport, trade, and communications are repeatedly threatened and disrupted worldwide. While the pace and intensity of terror attacks have abated, many of the temporary security measures and sacrifices of liberty adopted in their immediate aftermath have become more or less permanent. This book examines the social, cultural, and political drivers of the war on terror through the framework of a qpolitical moral panicq: the exploration of threats to particular individuals or institutions that come to be viewed as threats to a way of life, social norms and values, civilization, and even morality itself. Drawing upon a wide range of domestic and international case studies, this volume reinforces the need for reason, empathy, and a dogged defence of principle in the face of terror. This book will be of much interest to students of terrorism studies, human rights, U.S. foreign policy, American politics, and Security Studies and I.R. in general.Media sources placed Fazul in Kenya and Tanzania in 2008, but the following year other reports suggested that the wanted ...
