More About This Textbook

Overview

Today, no single issue dominates the global political landscape as much as terrorism. Aware of their unique position in the newly unipolar world, terrorist leaders-Osama bin Laden foremost among them-have articulated that economic warfare is a key component of the new terrorist agenda. Governments have accentuated the role of economic tools in their counter-terrorism policies while maintaining emphasis on the application of military force, or "hard power," even though such tools often prove unnecessarily blunt, or in some cases are sorely inadequate. Given the complexity of the global threat posed by modern trans-national terrorist groups, combating terrorism with a mix of hard and "soft power" is more important than ever. The need for nuanced management and a full complement of choices in the policy toolkit is a pressing concern.

Terrornomics is an invaluable new book for graduate and undergraduate courses in terrorism studies that

o Brings together contributions from renowned international scholars and practitioners from a variety of disciplineso Provides a multifaceted view of contemporary financial counterterrorism and terrorist funding effortso Employs key concepts, terms, case studies and policy recommendations to advance the reader's understanding of the threats and possible courses of action.

Terrornomics helps policy makers and students of the complex phenomenon known as terrorism grasp the critical financial and economic issues, while providing potential counterterrorist strategies.
