"Combating Terrorism: The Legal Challenge" explores the difficulties of framing laws against terrorism. Against the backdrop of 11 September attacks, the book examines the crucial question of whether terrorism can, indeed, have a legal remedy. It also provides the reader a quick comparison of specific provisions of India’s own anti-terrorism laws with those in the West, especially the United Kingdom. Written in an easy, conversational style, the book provides a glimpse into the mind of lawmakers in India and elsewhere trying to find balance tough anti-terrorism laws with individual liberties. "Arnab Goswami powerfully demonstrates how both states and the international community have found it difficult to frame effective laws to tackle terrorist activity. He concludes that they can no longer afford to procrastinate further. His work is addressed, in the first instance, to an Indian audience, but it has lessons for all those who are concerned with the policy dilemmas posed by a phenomenon, which operating as it does undercover, and unseen, represents a mortal threat to democracy everywhere. It deserves to be widely read."
