Summary
“Asafa Jalata’s book offers a complex definition of terrorism through a global historical analysis of the spread of colonialism and capitalism involving the West and the Rest. Rejecting a narrow Western construction of terrorism, Jalata focuses on acts of terrorism, and policies supporting them, committed by state actors from above as well as resistance from below. Jalata examines terrorism from above in the colonial Americas, Australia, and Africa. These analyses not only lay the groundwork for critiquing the growth of al-Qaeda and the spread of multi-national terrorism in the 21st century, but they also make a case for fundamental humanitarian policy changes to promote peace and empowerment.” —Wanda Rushing, Professor Emerita, Department of Sociology, University of Memphis, USA, and author of The Paradox of Place: Globalization in the American South.--
