The War on Terrorism has been ongoing for more than a decade, and seems to have no end. So it is critical to understand why this is, and set down markers of progress and defeat. This anthology presents thirteen controversial essays that debate issues associated with the War on Terrorism. Can the war be won if we give in to hatred? Is the war increasing militarism around the world? What does the West value? Should the United States detain prisoners in Guantanamo Bay? How effective is aid to local populations in preventing terrorism? Is public support waning? Readers will gain deep insight into these questions and valuable context to the real events affecting millions of people.
