About this title

Synopsis:

For decades, terrorist events have brought the subject of terrorism to the forefront of cultures around the globe and in more recent years, to the United States. And, for as long as violence has been a part of the human experience, the definition of terrorism has been widely debated. Terrorism in Perspective offers undergraduate and graduate students a comprehensive overview of global and domestic terrorism. Rather than focusing on a single definition of terrorism, this volume casts a wider net, focusing on acts of terrorism and their relationship to culture, religion, history, politics, economics, and ideology.

 

Each chapter is introduced with a rich overview of the issues, actors and actions specific to the topic under discussion, providing students with context prior to articles culled from a wide variety of popular, academic, and governmental sources. These previously published articles were selected to deepen the reader′s understanding of terrorism by focusing more intently on specific themes. Chapter topics include homegrown terrorism, international terrorism, female involvement in terrorism, the symbiotic relationship between the media and terrorism, and both conventional and non-conventional terrorist tactics.

Recommended as a general reference text and as a primary text for undergraduate students in international relations, politics, and violence and terrorism courses.
