"This monograph and the writings therein reflect largely on what can be termed 'international terrorism', as opposed to domestic or sub-national terror.Terrorism is neither necessarily international or sub-national, although the present campaign targets terrorist groups that have what US President Bush has termed 'global reach'. In Africa, particularly in Algeria, Sudan, Somalia and previously in Sierra Leone and Liberia terrorist acts have become a recurring feature of essentially local conflicts — even if their actions sometimes have wider regional and global consequences. The danger, from the perspective of many, is the tendency to conflate all into a global war on terrorism, often with the real intention by governments and others to suppress political demands for some level of self-determination, political engagement or recognition of certain rights."
