Reducing Terrorism Through Situational Crime Prevention, Paperback / softback Book

Reducing Terrorism Through Situational Crime Prevention Paperback / softback

Edited by Professor Joshua D. Freilich, Professor Graeme R. Newman

Description

This volume applies the principles of situational crime prevention (SCP) to terrorism and it features cutting-edge theoretical and empirical pieces.

Chapters focus on: terrorism by right-wing and left-wing extremists in the U.S., the conflicts in Iraq and Northern Ireland, foreign policy through an SCP lens, intelligence-led policing, the crimes of kidnapping and hostage taking, ideologically motivated tax refusal and cybercrime.

Sources of original data include research projects such as the government-funded American Terrorism Study, and the U.S.

Extremist Crime Study. Derek Cornish's 'script method' is applied in a number of case studies, and Ronald Clarke and Graeme Newman's 'EVIL DONE' concept is operationalized and refined.

The authors represent a mix of leading SCP scholars and noted terrorism researchers.
