Summary

For courses in Terrorism, Criminal Justice, Criminology, Security, Sociology, and Political Science


A broad, unbiased approach with a global perspective on past and present terrorism around the world
In an interesting, easy-to-read manner, Terrorism Today gives readers a broad view of the history and current state of terrorism, with chapters that focus on specific countries in every region of the world–North America, the UK, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, South America, and Australia. The book examines terrorist events and groups, analyzes responses to terrorism and the resulting changes in terrorist strategies, and looks at current and future trends for each continent. This thoroughly updated and revised edition explores at the explosive rise of Islamic State, presenting the current threat from global jihadist groups in graphic detail; charts the increase in attacks by suicide bombers in the past 15 years compared to the period from 1982-1999; presents profiles of prominent players in the world of terror; and covers risk management (security) and how to mitigate those risks, successfully manage incidents, and prepare business for continuity in an all-new Chapter 16, “Risk Management, Incident Management, and Business Continuity Management.”
