Terror and Consent: The Wars for the Twenty-First Century

Philip Bobbitt '71 (Knopf)

Published in the June11, 2008, issue

In this analysis of the West’s war against terrorism, the author rethinks foreign policy by exploring it from legal, historical, and military viewpoints. He argues that “market states” like the United States have helped drive global terrorism by allowing deregulation of the sale of weapons, and he offers recommendations for confronting terrorism, including building international alliances and increasing government surveillance. Bobbitt is the director of the Center for National Security at Columbia University. By K.F.G.
