O. Nikbay, S. Hancerli
IOS Press, Jun 29, 2007 - Political Science - 448 pages
Since terrorism is a global issue, counter-terrorism studies are also a global issue which requires cooperation and collaboration of multi-dimensional groups such as academicians representing the theoretical and research part, policymakers representing the coordination and authorization part and professionals representing the practical and real life experience. This publication is unique because it includes the researches, experiences and perceptions of all parts of this cooperation and collaboration. Hence, there are four primary sections in this book elaborating their perspectives: Understanding Terrorism, Suicide Attacks, Radical terrorism and Case Studies, Strategies and Tactics for Dealing with Terrorist Hostage Sieges, Hijackings and Kidnappings, and Counter-Terrorism Policies: Lessons for the Future. This book encapsulates these various themes that highlight how to understand the terrorism phenomenon and analyze how to respond to terrorism and terrorist operations and how to promote counter terrorism policies and strategies.
