The Black Tuesday attacks against New York and Washington shook the world. What do they reveal about the nature of contemporary world politics? What will be their impact on relations between states and on the wider global community? How did past policies and practices contribute to the current crisis? How might these events have been avoided, and what responses and strategies should now be adopted? What is the ethics and legality of the 'war against terrorism'?

In a series of short essays, leading scholars of international relations canvass these issues and more, offering early reflections on the nature and significance of the twenty-first century's firstglobal crisis.
