Abstract

During 2004, terrorism's profile as a matter of international concern has continued to rise. The world has already witnessed the report of the US 9/11 Commission, the Abu Ghraib torture revelations, the Madrid bombings, the arrest in the UK of the radical Muslim cleric Abu-Hamza al Masri, the publication of works by former top anti-terrorism advisor Richard Clarke1 (Against All Enemies: Inside America's War on Terror), the US Supreme Court decision concerning the rights of Guantanamo Bay prisoners (Rasul et al v Bush),2 the release of Michael Moore's film Fahrenheit 9/11 and an advocacy of torture warrants by Alan Dershowitz.3 It therefore seems particularly timely to review Philip Heymann's book which questions the very viability of a so-called 'war' on terrorism.
