In Conceptualizing Terrorism, Anthony Richards argues for the necessity of analytically distinguishing terrorism from other forms of political violence. For Richards, this is not only vital to better define this proliferating term, but also to critically reflect upon the accordant remits afforded to ‘counter-terrorism’. Alexander Blanchard recommends the book for its timely attempt to further clarify the parameters of this highly contemporary preoccupation.
