Received critical acclaim for his book The Peacemakers:
Middle East Matters Introduction A bibliographic survey of the law relating to terrorism - even one that tries to avoid advocacy and argument, and perhaps even more so on account of that - exposes its author to criticism more than anything over definition and criteria for inclusion.
Terrorism itself is a moving target: Terrorist acts can be undertaken for all sorts of reasons or, conceptually at least, for none at all other than to promote anarchy or to express hatred.
A purely criminal undertaking as in extortion is the least likely to threaten the wider public such crime tends to be local or limited to particular ethnic groups and it is also the easiest to deal with.
Terrorist acts commonly arise out of grievance and frustration, real or imagined: Terrorism, or the threat of terrorism, can involve weapons of mass destruction, or it can consist of measures of murder and mayhem, repression and intimidation directed at individuals, at a group or class, or at all the inhabitants of a region or state.
While a dozen or more sectors of the law are pertinent to terrorism - some as cause, some as effect, some as impediment and some as punishment - historically, no law has been more successful than the mere passage of time in bringing it to an end.
Terrorism and its companion, civil unrest, either bring revolutionary change and are then sanctified in a new national myth or they fail and grievances either continue to fester or are overtaken by events. It can come as no surprise that the political Establishment focuses on terrorism occurring at home, or targeting our friends.
When it is by elements of one friendly state against others of our friends Irish republicans against British and Irish nationalists; ethnic Greeks and ethnic Turks; Orthodox Slavs and Catholic Slavs one may perhaps side with the group most like oneself.
As in Monty Python's "The News for Parrots"  a mishap may be seen as tragic only to the extent that it has an impact on ourselves, our group, our class. Motivation, expectation and allegiance may be such that there is no obvious solution: Compromise and sacrifice may be unacceptable to those who, because they have wealth and prospects have the most to lose and also the most political influence.
Most sovereignty, if one goes back in time far enough, derives from conquest: The application of legal norms - of the law - to terrorism is itself an expedient: But even an objectively fair offer in compromise may not put an end to facts and myths that draw support, active and tacit, for extremist solutions.
There are few ethnic groups whose status and location are not the result of colonization, voluntary or forced movement and war.
The treaties concluding the First World War, and the ensuing resettlements the dissolution of the Ottoman Empire  and the creation of states and zones of influence, lie behind many recent European and Middle East conflicts.
Whether such historical facts will stimulate and support terrorism many years later depends on the existence of a survivor class from among the losing side, of a historical record, of myths, and of a culture that will sustain anger and violent action.
Western Europe, the United States and what is known as the "Old Commonwealth" deem themselves, and are demanded by others, to be pluralistic nations. Mazzini's unity of nation and commonality of nationality commonality of language, territory, ethnicity, culture, religion and history  would violate modern notion of human rights - but only in those developed nations target regions for migration by members of other cultures, mainly family members of previous migrants.
The result is a bouleversement of what used to be known as "allegiance"  carried over into America and crystalized in the XIVth Amendment and discussed further belowand fears of a developing "fifth column". We have, however, been there before: Civil and human rights to dissent, to associate, to sympathize with the enemy, real or perceived, have strengthened in the intervening years.
The claim of the State to undivided loyalty of those who owe it "permanent"  and "temporary"  allegiance has weakened concomitantly. The aim of "official" - i. It is not clear that a modern, liberal state can accomplish this the way totalitarian and imperial rulers did and do still.
One aim of private, political terrorism is to provoke officialdom to outrageous response and thereby to procure external support. Gandhian passive resistance may not be intended to provoke violent response  ; but if it does, the State, or the Establishment, has lost: It may be assumed that public suicides such as the Northern Irish death fasts the self-immolations in Vietnam  and suicide-murders as in Israel Iraq Afghanistan Europe  America .
Mass random killings may aim to provoke disproportionate responses  and, gain perversely moral high ground. Once in power terrorists may become "statesmen", be forgiven their crimes and have the opportunity to rewrite history books to make of themselves national heroes.
The criminal law may be marginalized by pardon or by refusal to prosecute, as has happened in Northern Ireland. Old animosities and remembrances of terror may be revived as new myths to support revived rivalries and justify genocide, as happened in the course of the breakup of Yugoslavia.
Or they may be denied, suppressed as a matter of official policy:Because of the relatively short life of many Web sites and links and the limited access to Anglo-American case law by students and researchers in other areas of the world, all the cases cited and many of the articles listed have been archived and should be accessible for some years.
