Terrorism  has  become  a  complete  phenomenon  in  itself  and  has  got  great  nuisance  in  its  very  name. One  of  the  most  widely  discussed  topics  in  the  present  era, modern day  terrorism  has  its  roots  in those  events  which  were  left  unattended  even  till  the  end  of  the  last  century. Author, Adrian  Guelke,  wrote  his   first  book  on  terrorism    in  an  emerging  post  colonial  era perspective, dating  from  late  60s.  This  book, has  been  written  in  a more  recent  perspective  where  9/11  has  become  a  symbolic  figure  deciding  every  international  affair  in its  pre- and  post- 9/11   dimension. The  basic  research  purpose  of  this  book  is  to  analyze  that  whether  9/11  was  fundamentally  turning point  for  the  world  politics  or  not. The  book    studies    the  development  of  the  phenomenon  TERRORISM  in  the  context  of  the  global  disorder  and  uncertainty  which  followed  the  end  of  the  cold  war.  Author  also  brings  forward  that  how  actual  threat  of  terrorism  is  magnified  manifolds  by  different  states  to  consume  money  and  time  of  governments.  It  tries  to  explain  that  democratizing  of  nations  by  holding  all  parties  elections  can  not  minimize  the  threat  of  terrorism, until  and  unless  the  very  root  causes  and  nature  of  terrorism  are   not  being  addressed  in  their  true  sense.
