    Cambridge ; New York ; Port Melbourne ; New Delhi ; Singapore : Cambridge University Press, 2019.

    "The threat of personal harm and destruction from terrorist attacks is nowhere near as great as in Arab nations. However, are counter-terrorism laws in the Arab world formulated and enforced to protect or oppress? [This book] examines the relationship between Western influence and counter-terrorism law, focusing on the Arab world, which is, on the one hand, a hostile producer of terrorist organizations, and on the other, a leader in countering 'terrorism'. With case studies of Egypt and Tunisia, [the author] traces the colonial roots of the use of coercion and extra-legal measures to protect the ruling order, which are now justified in both the West and the Arab world in the name of counter-terrorism. [This book] provides important lessons for counter-terrorism, not just in these countries but also elsewhere in the world."--The threat of personal harm and destruction from terrorist attacks is nowhere near as great as in Arab nations.
