This book does not attempt to explain the momentous events of September 11th 2001. Taking on the issues from a philosophical standpoint, Gupta observes that it has long been difficult to define what constitutes a 'terrorist act'. He explains how the events of last year have jolted even existing understandings in unexpected ways and, importantly, why this difficulty of definition persists.

Academic studies of ‘terrorism’ grew exponentially in number after the September 11 attacks  . More than a decade since the founding of the critical project, this book asks what has been learned. It showcases leading examples of critical terrorism studies and presents an agenda for the expansion of an evidence-based approach to political violence and terrorism.

An immense amount of media space has been devoted to the catastrophic terrorist attacks in New York and Washington. George Bush was quick to declare a 'war on terrorism' that may engulf many countries in addition to Afghanistan. But what does this say about Western perceptions of violence -- what does 'war on terrorism' mean? This book does not attempt to explain the momentous events of September 11th 2001. Instead it attempts to sharpen our understanding of what phrases such as 'international terrorism' and 'the war against terror' have come to mean since that date. Taking on the issues from a philosophical standpoint, Gupta observes that it has long been difficult to define what constitutes a 'terrorist act'. He explains how the events of last year have jolted even existing understandings in unexpected ways and, importantly, why this difficulty of definition persists. Examining how acts of terrorism and counter-terrorist measures are portrayed in the Western media and the impact this has on public perception, this thoughtful and provocative account provides a refreshing counterpoint to the sensationalised and often over-simplified reporting in the mainstream media.

This is a welcome change from the tired old cliches of our home grown dissident professors. Chomsky and pals say sensational things on the most earthshaking event in recent history and grab some media space -- but it is all predictable. The same old slogans and the same tired theories. There is something new in Professor Gupta's study, and the only comparable other one, Professor Honderich's. Both are from England. Both are philosophers. Both think. Does it seem strange that neither seem to figure much in the media? Gupta even less than others, and that has to be a good thing.
I don't agree with all his conclusions, but a. he gives no conspiracy theories, and b. whether I agree or not I get new insights. In all the armchair platitudinizing about terrorism here, in Afghanistan, in Iraq that is going on there are issues being missed out that Gupta homes in on. One, this book gives the only rigorous assessment of the media's construction of 11 September. Two, there are interesting thoughts about the politics that happens in language. How words like democracy , fanaticism, revenge, war are used and misused after 11 September is dissected with razor sharp effect. Three, there is a theory on two wars after 11 September (what Gupta calls "war of abstractions" and "war as military action") which is provocative and persuasive. Four, he offers a theory of war that is clear and succinct. Five, he doesn't like Virilio and can tell you why. Gupta is no friend of American "state terrorism" but nor is he a friend of Bin Laden and Al Quaida. Too many of us need to realize how this can be.

I have only read the chapter on mass media presentations of 11 September and like it a lot. Clear neat arguments, good background information. Best treatment of the subject I have read yet, and I have been looking. Not sure about the rest of the book -- looks a bit lefty to me -- but shan't say more without reading more. But great chapter on mass media with a great first quotation from German composer Stockhausen`s interview.
