Overview

It can take the form of a Molotov Cocktail or a Suicide Bomber detonating within a crowd. It can be a sophisticated electronic explosive device or a bomb in a shoe. Today’s terrorism threats, and their constant assault on global security continues to be a menace of great concern.

Providing a hands-on look inside the ugly, blood-stained world of global terrorism, Introduction to Terrorism covers the evolution of terrorism, its growing sophistication, and its cynical indifference to human life. It begins by covering the history of terrorism and showing how the threats have changed since the September 11, 2001 attacks. It examines the methods America has chosen to guard against and deal with these threats using its military, government, and civilian agencies.

Illustrating and examining current and future challenges, this state-of-the-art text follows a flow model developed and successfully taught in the classroom at several colleges and universities. Designed to follow the standard academic semester (one chapter per week), the book’s content, style, presentation, and organization have been class-tested and validated.
