Russia's Responses to Acts of Terrorism
EDITOR'S INTRODUCTION | A week following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the University of Michigan International Institute assembled a faculty panel to begin a dialogue on terrorism and globalization. The panel was designed with a university of the world in mind, a sanctuary for reason and reflection during a time of anger and grief. Two years prior to the terrorist destruction of the World Trade Center, Russia suffered a series of terrorist attacks against civilians. Panelist Alexander Knysh, professor of Islamic Studies and chairman of the department of Near Eastern studies at the University of Michigan, revisits these events and provides a context for understanding the terrorist attacks. Knysh analyses Russia's response, draws parallels between the US and Russian situations, and cautions that a war in Afghanistan will be extremely difficult to win.
