The book focuses on providing readers with an understanding of the central challenges, perspectives, and issues in the field through four Parts: a conceptual review of terrorism and its causes; terrorist environments, such as religious or international terrorism; the terrorist trade, including the role of the mass media; and a fourth section that discusses domestic terrorism in the United States and investigates homeland security from both theoretical and organizational perspectives.
