Description of "Fighting Terror"

Uncle Sam & Bharat Mata has a common enemy-Terrorism. Both have witnessed some of the worst terrorist attacks in human history on their soils which have shocked the world. Particularly, September 9, 2001 attacks in the USA & November 26, 2008 attacks in India have widely altered the attitude towards security & intelligence gathering of both the countries. Consequently, recent years have seen unprecedented co-operation between two nations which appeared to be hostile during cold war days. Both are investing heavily on counter terrorism strategies & also assisting each other in terror related investigations. This book widely analyses the US counter terrorism strategies and examines their viability in Indian scenario. Apart from simple comparison of the counter terrorism initiatives of both the countries, the book also focuses on the grey areas & examines cases where sometimes in their over zeal, the security agencies have crossed the line.

The book is written in a casual & jargon free language & is intended for general non-fiction readers.

It may be especially helpful for those who have newly developed interest in reading on counter terrorism, security & intelligence.
