The chapters in this volume deal with issues of terrorism and counterterrorism and the study thereof, especially in relation to crime, criminal justice, law, and social control. Applying a variety of theoretical approaches and methodological orientations, the topics addressed by the authors include lone-wolf terrorism, the prosecution and policing of terrorism, radicalization, suicide terrorism, torture, and counterterrorism policies, amongst others. The perspectives and analyses of the book are more than timely some fifteen years after the events of September 11 2001, as evinced from the manifold continuing terrorism-related concerns around the world today. This collection will be useful to students and scholars in sociology, criminology, law, political science, and public policy.
This volume is published in the series, Sociology of Crime, Law, and Deviance.
