A very serious and terrifying aspect of our contemporary society is the ever-present threat of terrorist activity. The horrific events that occurred at the World Trade Center and at the federal building in Oklahoma City dispel the notion that the United States is immune to such acts. Understanding this ominous kind of threat is the best way to prepare for it. The Future of Terrorism provides rich insight into the definitions and classifications of terrorism, the impact of international events on terrorism in the United States, trends in domestic terrorism, infiltration by foreign terrorist groups, media and terrorism, reducing the risk, deterrents, trends and projects for the future. Edited by Harvey W. Kushner, this carefully organized and very readable volume contains original contributions by a wide array of noted scholars, researchers, practitioners, media professionals, and advocates. Tailored for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in the social sciences, The Future of Terrorism is also a must read for academics, law enforcement personnel, victimologists, mental health professionals, and concerned readers in the general public.
