From the PublisherIntelligently presented and thoroughly referenced and indexed, the book offers a good balance of scientific and managerial information. Through an examination of the history of terrorism, the editors present a series of questions to assist in the development of prevention and emergency management programs. The first chapter looks at the link between the use of technology and the larger concept of terrorism. … Subsequent, highly educational chapters explain biological, nuclear, chemical, agricultural, and cyber threats with ample definitions, tables, and diagrams. Each provides helpful perspectives for decision and policy makers regarding assessments, prevention, and intervention. … The text is highly recommended to security professionals who seek a broader understanding of terrorist threats and technical countermeasures.
