  • "Expanding the Concept" boxes offer more detail on chapter topics; for instance, "Advantages of the Hawala System", "The Most Common Tactic of Terrorism", and "As Sahaab versus al Hurra."
  • Chapter learning objectives focus students' reading and are reinforced in chapter-ending "Chapter Take Aways" and "Objective Summary" sections.
  • Many chapters include an "Another Perspective" boxed feature -- reflecting the fact that issues in terrorism and homeland security often go beyond a simple two-sided debate. These features introduce controversial opinions and alternative understandings of social processes, giving students a deeper understanding of all the challenges involved. Topics include Force Multipliers, The PKK By Any Other Name, and Media Ownership.
  • 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.
