New book on terrorism by C. Mustafa Unal

Posted on December 23, 2011 10:09 AM |Permalink

Dr. C. Mustafa Unal (Ph.D., 2009) has published a book, Counterterrorism in Turkey: Policy Choices and Policy Effects toward the Kurdistan Worker's Party (PKK) (Routledge, 2011). The book, based on Dr. Unal's dissertation, examined counterterrorism policies from the perspectives of the government and the PKK. He evaluated whether the Turkish government's policy choices so far have been effective (and in what circumstances), and how they have affected both the level and nature of terrorist violence in Turkey.
