Description

The recent surge in terrorist activity has prompted a wave of conferences, symposia, and publications debating causes, preventive measures, and methods of control. The effects of terrorism on its victims, however, have not been as frequently addressed. Meeting the Challenges of Global Terrorism seeks to fill this gap. In this volume international experts- criminologists, policymakers, and police professionals-present case studies documenting the effects of terrorism on individuals and societies. They discuss physical, psychological, and economic impacts on a variety of regions including India, Israel, Japan, and Latin America-each of which has endured unique forms of terrorist activity-and they share prevention, control, and recovery strategies. In proposing the measures governments, international organizations, and justice agencies can take to curtail and eradicate terrorism, including international cooperative efforts, this work is a timely and important resource for scholars, policymakers, and other professionals engaged in ensuring the protection of public safety.show more
