Upasana Sonik Global 110 Lezra TA: Jayne Lee Sect: Thurs 7-750 Week 6 reading notes: Wilkins begins his book by stating the beliefs of terrorists as to why they believe that their act of terrorism is justified. He questions why is terrorism wrong? He answers this question by replying with the idea that there is threat or harm, and threats are a species of coercion. An example of two kidnappings of William Randolph Hearst and his daughter, Patricia Hearst, are used to exemplify the difference between primary and secondary targets of terrorism. The first chapter of the book, talks about if and when can terrorism be justified. One main point he makes in this chapter is that not every act that terrifies people is an act of terrorism. Examples that supported this statement were the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, also an example of a rapist coercing his victim. Wilkin's believes that acts of terrorism’s objectives are an alteration of social and political policy. He implies that an act of terrorism can be justified if it is carried out

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
