Abstract

The old adage says ‘never judge the book by the cover’. But just by reading the title on the cover, it is clear that Henry Prunckun and Troy Whitford set themselves up to a challenging task.Terrorism and counter terrorism are mammoth-size concepts. Their actors are numerous and arguably expanding. Their actions are complex and their political, social, and economic ramifications run deep in government, security and societal structures. Introducing both concepts,and to do so comprehensively, is indeed easier said than done. Prunckun and Whitford, however,not only rise to the occasion, but more importantly, they have produced a practical, easy-to-read,and timely learning tool for students with little or no previous exposure to terrorism-related issues, either professionally or academically.
