It deals with the various causes of terrorism and the factors contributing to the spread of the events. The author shows how this form of violence differs from other violent acts, and brings out the chief moral issues concerning terrorism. The book also registers the point of view of the terrorist toward a moral justification of the violent acts they perpetrate, and refutes their claim with a critical evaluation of the moral justification of terrorism.
