A small number of students do their dissertations on this subject. It is an interesting and very real problem that needs to be tackled at both a practical and theoretical level. This text helps those students to explore the topic and is an accessible text for them.
A well thought through textbook which identifies some of the contemporary issues.
A series that would be useful for Level 3 or, at best, level 4 as it provides a foundation for study at degree level.
Terrorism has became a major concern for policing and this book provides a sound introduction to the subject. Students will, however, have to read far more widely if they are to gather a sound understanding of this very complex area of study.
Passed to lecturer in organised crime for his consideration. Not relevant for this course
Terrorism has become a major issue for policing during the 21st century, exacerbated by world events, the emerging new terrorism with its global implications, and a growing need to develop effective counter-terrorism strategies. The book provides students with a historical perspective, introduces a number of well established theories relating to terrorism, and considers how the UK has responded by developing a counter terrorism strategy.
This book fits in very well with a number of our degree level courses which makes it a particularly good course book. It has great relevance and professional currency which is attractive to our students as both are great areas of subject interest but equally is a popular addition to the Policing Matters range which the students find are useful and easy to use.
the text provides relevant information in a readable format to meet the needs of the students
an informative book that deals with its topic in a very concise yet informative way. Unfortunately our course only really touches on terrorism so it is recommended as a library purchase
I thought this is a basic introduction to the subject but neither wide enough in spectrum terms nor detailed enough to use as a course reader.
That is why I have asked for another of your publications by Gus Martin to go alongside Matthew Carr's Infernal Machine (New Press) and the Very Short Introduction to Terrorism by Charles Townshend (OUP)
A really good introduction to this topic. Gives background information on Islam (for those new to that religion), and uses specific cases of UK terrorism to good effect.
The activities within the book point the student to further reading and allow the reader to reflect on their reading and tasks, and on the topic.
An informative read
Excellent intoductory text for students needing to understand the hidden complexities surrounding policing diversity and terrorism
This text provides a sound introduction to the subject of policing terrorism, and provides a foundation for students to explore the are through further research.
