About the book

Since 2011 attacks that sow terror in the hearts of people all over the world have increased significantly, both in their frequency and intensity. Victims of these attacks have also increased, in the West and, more specifically, elsewhere. Is there indeed a war of terror, as many political leaders would have the world believe?

In his examination of the relationship between the West and the rest of the world, the author turns many dearly held Western assumptions on their heads. Peter Knoope convincingly shows the fundamental differences over key concepts such as existence, time, development and violence.

Highly recommended for anyone wanting to explore the notion of security.
