Terrorism: Implications of Technology and Tactics

R C Mishra (Author)
Synopsis Terrorism is one of the most compelling domestic and international concerns that the globalised world faces. Today, terrorism has a global reach that it did not have before the advent of globalisation and the information revolution. It can ride the back of the web and use advanced communications to move immense financial flows. The new terrorism is increasingly networked; more diverse in terms of motivations, sponsorship, security consequences, and is more lethal. Besides traditional weapons of terrorists such as threats, sabotage, assassination, hostage taking, murder, kidnapping and bombing, today's terrorists are well-equipped with nuclear, biological as well as cyber weapons. As a result, much existing counter-terrorism experience may be losing its relevance as network forms of organisation replace the canonical terrorist hierarchies, or as state sponsorship becomes more subtle and difficult to expose. This book provide a detailed account of the various technologies and tactics used by terrorists. It clearly presents the dangers that terrorism poses to the world and emphasises on the need of a world campaign against the threats. It is a must-read for all academics or practitioners who are dealing with the issue of terrorism.
