America and Europe after 9/11 and Iraq: The Great Divide (Hardcover), by Sarwar A. Kashmeri. Praeger Security International General Interest-Cloth (November 30, 2006).
Kashmeri, an Internet journalist who covers transatlantic business, discusses recent political relations between the U.S and Europe. Blaming the U.S. for their poor condition, especially for charging into Iraq in 2003, Kashmeri does acknowledge that revamping institutions such as NATO has generated friction independent of controversies surrounding Iraq. The U.S. posture toward the European Union is another source of strain; the government and business leaders of this country, according to Kashmeri, being unable to decide if the EU is a rival or a partner. Throughout the work, he includes observations on these points obtained from interviews with about a dozen prominent ex-officeholders of the stature of Brent Scowcroft and John Major. Intermittently, Kashmeri describes friction that plainly emanates from the European side, such as France's reach for the paramount role within the EU, but the author's perspective explicitly requires the U.S. to change its ways. Readers keeping current on transatlantic affairs will benefit from, if not universally subscribe to, this informed analysis.   Information

Prisons, Peace and Terrorism: Penal Policy in the Reduction of Political Violence in Northern Ireland, Italy and the Spanish Basque Country, 1968-97 (Hardcover), by Michael von Tangen Page. Palgrave Macmillan (December 15, 1998).
Over the last 30 years several western European nations have faced protracted low-intensity conflicts. A key aspect in the state's response to such political violence is through the prison system, yet this is an area that up to now has only been of peripheral interest to scholars. This book is a study of the role that prison can play in the reduction of terrorism. It examines the experiences of three western Europe jurisdictions: North Ireland, Italy and the Spanish Basque Country. It looks at the role of the prisons both as tools for counter-insurgency and as part of a process of conflict resolution. The book also takes a detailed look at each jurisdiction and then compares the experience of the three conflicts. Information

The Coming Balkan Caliphate: The Threat of Radical Islam to Europe and the West (Hardcover), by Christopher Deliso. Praeger Security International General Interest-Cloth (June 30, 2007).
An American journalist and travel writing based in the Balkans, Deliso does not contend that Muslims in the Balkans are about to cast off their centuries of liberal thought and behavior. Rather he argues that small groups of local but globally connected fundamentalists could gravitate toward existing terrorist organizations, and introduce a new dimension to political issues and social policy that will impact the Christian as well as Muslim populations of the peninsula.

The Evolution of Civil-Military Relations in South East Europe: Continuing Democratic Reform and Adapting to the Needs of Fighting Terrorism (Hardcover), by Philipp H. Fluri, Gustav E. Gustenau and Plamen I. Pantev (Editors). Physica-Verlag Heidelberg; 1 edition (September 19, 2005).
It is a notorious fact that the evolution of civil-military relations and the security sector reform in South-East Europe has to deal with post-totalitarian and post-conflict challenges. The book examines these issues in the context of the adaptation to combating terrorism and the need to be effective in this struggle, while continuing the democratic reforms in the individual countries. A team of authors from all South-East European states, Western Europe and North America draws a complicated, yet logically evolving picture of the problems in the security sector reform field of the region, and proves the validity of the particular research area. This comprehensive study concludes that the security sector in the region is becoming increasingly mature, but also faces a variety of uncompleted tasks. Information

While Europe Slept: How Radical Islam is Destroying the West from Within (Paperback), by Bruce Bawer. Broadway (September 11, 2007).
Bruce Bawer, who has wrestled previously about American fundamentalism (Stealing Jesus) and gay rights (A Place at the Table), finds an equally contentious and compelling subject in the blind eye of European liberalism. Enchanted by the famed tolerance of Amsterdam, Bawer moved to Europe in 1998. But after settling in a predominantly Muslim neighborhood, the author noticed a society that offered "millions in aid, but not a penny in salary." Reviewers find Bawer an eloquent writer with his passion balanced between his American sensibilities and his European residence. The sharpest criticism—that a lack of a bibliography turns While Europe Slept into an exercise in pamphleteering—doesn't undermine the ultimate effectiveness, or importance, of Bawer's thesis.
