About The Solution

Overview

Written by acclaimed national terrorism expert Jonathan R. White, the market-leading TERRORISM AND HOMELAND SECURITY, 7th Edition is widely recognized as the most comprehensive, balanced, and objective text available for the course. Packed with examples and cutting-edge discussions, White provides a theoretical and conceptual framework that enables your students to understand how terrorism arises and how it functions. He discusses the most sophisticated theories by the best terrorist analysts in the world, while still focusing on the domestic and international threat of terrorism and the basic security issues surrounding terrorism today. The text gives essential historical (pre-1980) background on the phenomenon of terrorism and the roots of contemporary conflicts, includes detailed descriptions of recent and contemporary conflicts shaping the world stage, and presents theoretical and concrete information about Homeland Security organizations. Completely current, the Seventh Edition has been thoroughly updated to include the latest developments in the field and features an all-new chapter on state-of-the-art law enforcement tools and techniques for combating terrorism.


Additional Product Information

Features/Benefits

  • The best-selling terrorism book on the market, TERRORISM AND HOMELAND SECURITY, 7th Edition is intended for use in the Terrorism/Homeland Security course taught by criminal justice, political science, and sociology departments. Its solid research and theoretical discussion make it an ideal text for both undergraduate and graduate level courses.
  • Providing maximum learning reinforcement, each chapter's Learning Objectives are carefully integrated within the text, matched to end-of-chapter summary sections, and linked to corresponding quiz/test items in the accompanying Test Bank, Companion Website, and Study Guide. Keeping students visually engaged, each discussion is enhanced with diagrams and flow charts to illustrate key concepts.
  • Offering a comprehensive, cutting-edge introduction to terrorism and homeland security, White's popular text begins by dealing with theoretical and criminological issues, followed by detailed historical discussions of the birth and evolution of the terrorism movement. Part III deals with contemporary international and domestic terrorism, while the final chapters of the text focus on issues surrounding the prevention of terrorism through homeland security.
  • Many chapters feature "Another Point of View" sidebars--because issues in terrorism and homeland security often go beyond a simple two-sided debate. These sidebars introduce controversial opinions and alternative understandings of social processes, giving students a deeper understanding of all the challenges involved.
  • Terrorism frequently blurs the line between law enforcement and national security intelligence. The text's unique emphasis on intelligence helps students see the difference. Sections in Part IV spotlight law enforcement intelligence systems, fusion centers, and national security intelligence--equipping students with a solid understanding of today's intelligence initiatives.

What's New

  • NEW! Completely revised and up to date, the ground-breaking Seventh Edition includes new or updated material in all chapters, offering cutting-edge coverage of nuclear and biological terrorism, cyberterrorism, targeted killings of terrorists abroad, piracy, emerging tactics and techniques, U.S. policy changes, detainee rights, and much more.
  • NEW! Reflecting the latest developments in the field, Part IV, Homeland Security, has been expanded. All-new Ch. 18, "Emerging Trends," introduces state-of-the-art law enforcement tools and techniques for combating terrorism.
  • NEW! "Critical Engagement" features in every chapter highlight a current controversy, giving students the opportunity to sharpen their critical thinking skills by grappling with real-world challenges.
