Summary

Post-cold war in focus and Unbiased in perspective, this book makes clear not only what terrorism is, and has been, but also what it may be like in this new century. Using clear, careful explanations of concepts and case studies of real events (including Sept. 11), it makes this multidimensional, complex and emotionally-tinged phenomena accessible and understandable to those with no scholarly background in the subject. It 1) examines the known facets of contemporary terrorism—explaining what terrorism is, who carries it out, and how terrorist acts are committed; 2) analyzes the laws and special forces which nations within the international community have created to meet this challenge; and 3) predicts forthcoming patterns of terrorism in the new century. An Idea Whose Time Has Come? Not a Modern Phenomenon. Ideology and Terrorism: Rights from Wrongs. Criminals or Crusaders? Terrorism By The State. “Terrorism, Inc.” Terrorist Training. The Media: Another Weapon for Both Sides? Domestic Terrorism in the U.S.: Challenge to Democracies. Legal Perspectives on Terrorism. Counterterrorism: The Use of Special Forces. Terrorism, Intelligence, and the Law. Security Measures: A Frail Defense. Post-Cold War Trends. Future Prospects. For law enforcement personnel, special police anti-terror units, military personal, and anyone interested in understanding terrorism.
