9781843760641: Terrorism (Elgar Mini Series)

This two-volume set presents a comprehensive selection of some of the most significant published papers and articles on terrorism. The collection examines terrorism from a variety of perspectives, including state terror. Beginning with a section on concepts of terrorism, it first considers the causes and nature of regimes of terror. It then concentrates on terrorist groups in society and in a search for explanations, it investigates the relationship between terrorism and religion, the underlying causes for the rise of terrorist groups and the relation of these groups to new social movements. Psychological and rational choice explanations are also explored. Several articles study the organization of terrorist groups and their strategy and tactics. A final section deals with methods of counteracting terrorism. The editor has written an authoritative introduction which highlights the centrality to terrorism of the killing of innocents and draws important lessons from the topics covered in the collection.

From the Back Cover:

The word 'terrorism' commonly evokes images of the suicide bomber with explosives strapped around the waist, of hijacked aeroplanes and of bombs placed under a park bench. To think of terrorism only in terms of acts carried out by terrorist groups, however, is to seriously misunderstand its true nature.  It is not restricted to extremist factions such as ETA or Al-Qaida, but is also perpetrated and supported by governments.

 

In this fully revised and updated introduction Rosemary H. T. O’Kane offers a concise yet comprehensive exploration of the groups, states and regimes of terrorism across 2000 years of history up to the present day.  Exploring new cases such as Darfur, Sudan and the spread of Islamic groups after 9/11, the book also includes:

  • An updated chronology extended to 2011
  • A document section with eighteen important documents on terrorism, a full glossary, and a who’s who of important figures
  • A full colour photo plate section and two world maps, depicting terror regimes and terrorist group bases
  • Case studies and explanations for each form of terrorism

This text is an ideal introduction for students studying the subject of terrorism within the disciplines of history, politics, international relations, peace and conflict studies, criminology and sociology, as well as anyone with a general interest in global politics.

 

Rosemary H. T. O’Kane is Emeritus Professor of Comparative Political Theory at Keele University (Emeritus since 2009). She has written widely on the subject of terrorism in both books and journals.
