(p.1) Introduction
Non-Western responses to terrorism

Michael J. Boyle

Manchester University Press

This introduction chapter identifies the rationale for a comparative study of the counterterrorism responses of non-Western states. It argues that much of the counterterrorism literature is biased towards Western perspectives, particularly that of the United States, United Kingdom, and Israel, and tends to ignore the distinct counterterrorism approaches of non-Western states. This chapter defines what is meant by “non-Western” in this volume and identifies the drivers – historical, social, political, cultural and religious – that determine their counterterrorism response.

Keywords:   Terrorism, Political Violence, Non-Western, Counter-terrorism, Insurgency
