Terrorism: Documents of International and Local Control is a hardbound series that provides primary-source documents on the worldwide counter-terrorism effort. Chief among the documents collected are transcripts of Congressional testimony, reports by such federal government bodies as the Congressional Research Service and the Government Accountability Office, and case law covering issues related to terrorism. Most volumes carry a single theme, and inside each volume the documents appear within topic-based categories. The series also includes a subject index and other indices that guide the user through this complex area of the law. Terrorism in Pakistan's value to researchers of Pakistani terrorism issues is immediately evident from the organization of the salient documents therein: first Pakistan's security law (in statutes and international agreements), then Pakistan's reports to the UN, UN resolutions on Pakistani terrorism developments, next some U.S. perspectives on the problem, and lastly the perspectives of international groups (including a message from al-Qaeda). Since Pakistan's national efforts at thwarting internal terrorist activity have largely failed, this volume's combination of perspectives from inside the country with those from elsewhere yields a full and thoughtful picture for researchers delving into this complex arena, where history, religious extremism, and international political imperatives meet. The impact of jihadist training and organization within Pakistan extends far beyond its borders, and so any scholarly treatment of this subject must include both that discussion of domestic measures and that survey of international responses to those measures. Researchers will find in this volume the full spectrum of legal and political debate that revolves around this troubled country.
