ABSTRACT

International Terrorism and the United States: Policy Considerations for the 1990's   [open pdf - 3MB]

"Over the years, the U.S. has not enjoyed much success in dealing with international terrorism. Its lack of success is often attributed to the absence of a coherent national policy to combat terrorism. Historically, the U.S. reacted to terrorism with declaratory policy statements based on the tenet of not giving-in to terrorist demands. The purpose of this paper is to examine how the U.S. has responded to terrorism and conclude by discussing policy considerations for the 1990s."
