Theory meets practice: Facets of power in the 'War on Terror'1

Research output: Chapter in Book/Entry/PoemChapter


Islamic fundamentalists who want to impose their vision of government upon the Middle East and the 'West' which, at the very least, wants to maintain the status quo and, at best, to cultivate liberal democratic regimes in the region. In the debate on what this conflict is about, some say the core issues are development and social mobility, which cannot be achieved with guns and bombs. Others believe that the use of military force is an important component in defeating what they see as an overtly 'military' threat, the new 'fascism'of the twenty-first century.
