The Struggle against Terrorism: Grand Strategy, Strategy, and Tactics

| Winter 2001/02


The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, have changed the international environment in ways that few would have imagined when the new millennium began. International Security rarely commissions articles, but the extraordinary events of September 11 deserve attention in these pages. The editors therefore invited current and former BCSIA faculty, associates, and research fellows Samina Ahmed, Ashton Carter, Brahma Chellaney, Philip Heymann, Barry Posen, and Stephen Walt to share their thoughts on the ramifications of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Their contributions to this issue represent the first – but by no means the last – word on this subject in our pages. The editors welcome further submissions on the implications of the events of September 11.
