Overview

"This book explores how dramatically the face of terrorism has changed in the last decade. Instead of resisting globalization, terrorist groups have taken full advantage of the widespread availability of communication technologies, inexpensive travel, porous borders, privatization of security, and access to saturated weapons markets to grow rapidly in strength, size, and reach. Many rag-tag groups have since evolved into sophisticated organizations. In addition to accumulating political influence and economic resources, they have also learnt to use efficient tactics and techniques from both the East and West." The various contributions to this book from specialized analysts and field operatives will provide the reader with greater insight into terrorist intentions and capabilities, their tactics, the technologies they use, and potential opportunities for attack, thereby outlining the evolving threat of terrorism.
