9780981537832: Terrorism: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

Terrorism is a threat, a modus operandi, and a phenomenon. A resolution of the UN General Assembly after 9/11 designated it as a threat to international peace and security. As a modus operandi, from a largely one-dimensional threat of the years before the Arab–Israeli war of 1967, it has evolved into a multidimensional threat. As a phenomenon, it has many dimensions—political, economic, ideological, and operational. Even the profile of a terrorist keeps changing. The terrorists of yesterday were seen as “misled youth” from the exploited or wronged sections of society. An increasing number of the terrorists of today are educated and come from well-to-do families. They are self-motivated and technology savvy. Their ability to add sophistication to their methods of operation surpasses the skill of the security agencies. This book seeks to contribute to the task of understanding terrorism as it is evolving.
