This book brings together leading international experts in the world of terrorism research and counterterrorism policy-making.

It has three clear areas of focus:


  • it looks at current issues and trends in terrorism research

  • it explores how contemporary research on terrorism is focused and conducted

  • it examines how this research impacts in terms of counterterrorism policy and practice.

This is essential reading for all students of politics and security studies and scholars with an interest in terrorism and policy-making.

'Contributors examine the current issues dominating terrorism research and their impact on counter-terrorism policy and practice. All their findings deserve attention among terrorism analysts.'

Joshua Sinai, The Washington Times
