From the Back Cover:

Terrorism: Research, Readings, and Realities contains original essays on both established and unusual aspects of terrorist studies by over 30 scholars and authorities from a range of fields including criminal justice, political science, sociology, history, law enforcement, and public policy. Using both a case study and conceptual approach, Terrorism: Research, Readings, and Realities provides the reader with a variety of historical, theoretical and descriptive explorations of timely, controversial subjects. The breadth and diversity of these researched essays and the inclusion of many new contributions on compelling issues make the volume a perfect fit for the instructor and student of courses on terrorism and extremism.

About the Author:

Lynne L. Snowden, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor of Criminal Justice at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. She has published three books, Collective Violence (Allyn & Bacon) and Preventing Terrorism, 1st and 2nd eds (2002 & 2003) and numerous journal articles on violence, terrorism, policing, and other related topics. Dr. Snowden began her study of group violence and risk assessment when she worked with Dr. Henry Quarantelli at the Disaster Research Center of the University of Delaware, where she earned her doctorate. The extensive library of collective-violence topics, such as riots, rebellions, and cult behavior, and field data collected by Center researchers during the turbulent 60s on riots and anti-war protests helped her to develop a course on terrorism, cults, and hate groups that she continues to teach yearly. Recently her interest broadened to the study of homeland security since the topic combines her research in illegal migration, risk assessment of violent groups, and policing issues.

Bradley C. Whitsel, Ph.D., earned his doctorate in political science at the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University. His research interests include terrorism, religion and politics, and cults/alternative religions. In addition to his journal publications in these areas, he has written a book on a major North American new religious movement, The Church Universal and Triumphant (Syracuse University Press, 2003). He is presently researching radical political and social movements at the University of Kansas Wilcox Collection for a new project on historic anti-statist groups in the United States.
