"European Democracies Against Terrorism" by Fernando Reinares

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article review


The strengths of this book lie in the first section (French text excluded). All of the chapters here are good and informative. Nearly all go to the trouble of highlighting the lessons for best practice which have emerged from the particular country in question (the exception being the UK chapter). The book would have been even stronger if this aspect of text was expanded upon. For example, there is no chapter looking at the German experience which is a real loss. Nevertheless, this is overall a book which is often useful and thought-provoking and it unquestionably has an overlooked relevance in assessing current events. Despite its obvious flaws it deserves a wider readership than it has so far received.
