Updated in a new 6th edition,Terrorism in the Twenty-First Centuryhelps readers understand terrorism, responses to it, and current trends that affect the future of this phenomenon. Putting terrorism into historical perspective and analyzing it as a form of political violence, this book presents the most essential concepts, the latest data, and numerous case studies to promote effective analysis of terrorist acts. It objectively breaks down the who-what-why-how of terrorism, giving readers a way both to understand patterns of behavior and to more critically evaluate forthcoming patterns.
