Annotation: THIS BOOK ANALYZES THE ORIGINS, MOTIVES, AND TACTICS OF TERRORISM AND PRESENTS EFFECTIVE COUNTERTERRORIST MEASURES.
Abstract: THE POLICIES OF U.S. AND OTHER COUNTRIES TOWARD TERRORISM ARE EXAMINED. U.S.POLICY HAS SHIFTED FROM PUBLIC MORAL SUPPORT OF THE GOVERNMENT UNDER ATTACK TO ACTING SOLELY IN WHAT IS PERCEIVED TO BE THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE U.S. HOWEVER, ACTS OF TERROR ARE CONDONED BY MANY MEMBERS OF THE UNITED NATIONS. WORLD DIPLOMACY AGAINST TERRORISM IS FRAGMENTED, MAKING THE COUNTERTERRORIST MISSION LIMITED AND INEFFECTIVE. THE DEVELOPMENT OF TERRORISM FROM A TACTIC OF REVOLUTION TO THE REVOLUTION ITSELF IS TRACED IN THE ACCOUNTS OF THE CUBAN REVOLUTION, CHE GUEVARA'S REVOLUTION IN BRAZIL, AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE FOCO THEORY OF URBAN TERRORISM. THE CHAPTER ON WORLDWIDE TERRORISM EXAMINES THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN PATRON GOVERNMENTS AND TERRORIST GROUPS IN AFRICA, ASIA, LATIN AMERICA, AND THE MIDDLE EAST. THE OPERATIONS OF TERRORIST GROUPS ARE ANALYZED, WITH EXAMPLES PROVIDED FROM THE JAPANESE RED ARMY, AND BALKAN AND BASQUE TERRORIST GROUPS; THE DEVELOPMENT OF TERRORISM IN WEST GERMANY, AS EXEMPLIFIED BY THE BAADER-MEINHOFF GANG IS ALSO TRACED. COUNTERTERRORIST MEASURES SUCH AS DEFENSIVE DRIVING, RESIDENCE SECURITY, AND EMPLOYEE SECURITY ARE PRESENTED, AND SPECIFIC TECHNIQUES FOR PERSONAL SECURITY ARE ANALYZED; INCLUDING RAMMING ROADBLOCKS AND THE USE OF FIREARMS. SUGGESTIONS ARE MADE FOR THE PLANNING OF COUNTERTERRORIST TACTICS AND ORGANIZATIONS. A CLASSIFICATION OF TERRORIST ORGANIZATION IS APPENDED.
