Summary

Historically, countering terrorism has been something that security services have carried out on behalf of the state, without community consultaiton or consent. Since 9/11 however, this tradition has increasingly been questioned and the idea that communities have the potential to defeat al Qaeda - related or influenced terrorism has gained ascendency across policy, security and other contexts. Based on research in the US and UK, this book examines the involvement of Muslim communities in terror crime prevention work, exploring the complexities of community involvement as well as its advantages and examining how trusting relationships between police, security services and communites can be built.
