Ellis (a retired major of the Military Police Corps of the United States Army Reserve) gives advice to local police, security officials, and emergency officials on how to prepare for and deal with the threat of what is commonly understood as suicide bombers, although he insists on the term "homicide bombers" (he also uses the term "explosive weapons of mass destruction" to refer to what the US army has termed "improvised explosive devices"). Perhaps because of his background, his advice straddles the line between military and domestic police considerations. It provides examination of US and United Nations policy and regulation relevant to suicide bombers, elements of terrorist operations, basic aspects of vehicle-borne and person-born explosive effects, vulnerability assessment, selected incidents of suicide bombings, prevention and defensive actions against suicide bombers, and response actions to suicide bombing events.
