Synopsis

Terrorism by Ben Malisow

Terrorism has been used as a tactic against governments and other entities of power throughout history. In this timely, fascinating book, Terrorism examines the history of such terrorist acts, and defines the different types of terrorism experienced throughout the world, from the struggles in Northern Ireland to the more recent events of September 11, 2001. Each chapter examines a particular branch of terrorism by analyzing historical cases and discussing the tactics used by the terrorists, how government and law enforcement responded, and what influence the event had on future anti terrorism efforts. Although terrorist acts often rise above the level of mere crime, criminal activity is essential to most terrorist pursuits, whether in the form of forged documents, smuggled explosives, or illegal money-laundering.The chapters include: Utopian Terrorism; Assassination: Terrorist Tool; State-On-State Terrorism; Total War - Weapons of Mass Destruction; and, The Future of Terrorism - The Future of Politics.
