In the aftermath of September 11th After the Terror asks what terrorism can tell us about ourselves and our moral obligations. It pits a 'morality of humanity' - a morality of sympathy, generosity and fellow-feeling - against conventional, unreflective morality." "In this expanded new paperback edition, Ted Honderich has more to say of the idea of 'terrorism for humanity' - political violence committed to rescuing people from wretchedness and deprivation. In this philosophy that goes against a consensus of civility about lives we are destroying and homelands we are helping to violate. Britain's outstanding radical philosopher requires us to think more carefully about our own existence and our trust in our democratic governments.
