The attacks of 11 September 2001 on the United States, organised by the al–Qaeda network , were immediately described as a turning point in international history. This book examines the policy responses to superterrorism, suggesting that the world was not in fact turned upside down by the events of this day, but rather that some established trends and tendencies were picked up and reinforced while others were recast.

Leading specialists look at how terrorism is now viewed, the role of the armed forces, the responses of the European Union and NATO, the impact on the transatlantic relationship, the adjustments demanded of different legal systems and financial institutions, and how the media affected responses to these dramatic events.

"The analyses of post –September 11 challenges for policy makers in the United States and in Europe presented here remain as illuminating and thought provoking today as they were in the first year or so after the attacks on New York and Washington."Brigitte L. Nacos, Columbia University

"This is a remarkably good book. In the deluge of writing that has followed the attacks on September 11, 2001 and the announcement of a ′global war on terror,′ this collection of essays has much to recommend it." The European Legacy
