Description

Terrorism: Documents of International and Local Control is a hardbound series that provides primary-source documents on the worldwide counter-terrorism effort. Chief among the documents collected are transcripts of Congressional testimony, reports by such federal government bodies as the Congressional Research Service and the Government Accountability Office, and case law covering issues related to terrorism. Most volumes carry a single theme, and inside each volume the documents appear within topic-based categories. The series also includes a subject index and other indices that guide the user through this complex area of the law. With the addition of commentary from a prominent member of the U.S. national security establishment, Professor Douglas C. Lovelace, this series becomes the premiere resource for an informative and analytical discourse on terrorism and how it continues to have a catastrophic effect on our society. About this Volume Volume 91: In this volume, Doug Lovelace provides an insightful tour of the often obscure realm of post-9/11 U.S. intelligence work. By presenting, organizing, and explaining both broadly themed documents (like the federal government's National Intelligence Estimate) and more narrowly themed documents (like a report on cyber-terror from the Congressional Research Service), Professor Lovelace illuminates an otherwise complex and unwieldy topic. For example, this book features a country-by-country review of recent terrorist activity, along with Lovelace's expert commentary on U.S. reporting from those coutnries. This one volume will serve researchers as a concise but thorough guide to recent efforts by U.S. intelligence agencies in preventing terrorist attacks.show more
