Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of International Law and the Use of Force against Terrorism by Dr. Shadi Adnan Alshdaifat.

As shown in the case of Attila the Hun, and his thirst for power, property, and personal prestige, nation states throughout the world, particularly in Asia and Europe, have, since ancient times, been vulnerable to invasion by other nation states and bands of looters from outside their borders. Terrorism’s progress into the modern day has caused extreme concern among members of the international community, who now accept that it is like a cancer that refuses to localize itself within any single organ of the body, but seeks to spread its lethality throughout, even if that means destroying itself along with the host. The fight against terrorism is long and complex, but the end is known in advance. Terrorists are defending a lost cause, and their defeat is inevitable, and democracy, freedom, and diplomacy will triumph.
