Case Studies in Domestic and International Terrorist Organizations

(First Edition)
Edited by Robert Kirkland

Paperback ISBN: 978-1-63487-992-7, 76 pages


In a post-9/11 world, the term terrorism is used to describe everything from guerilla-style warfare against U.S. Troops to mass murder of civilians in the name of ideological and political agendas. Case Studies in Domestic and International Terrorist Organizations provides high quality, timely information that can support operations to combat such terrorism.

The first unit of the anthology deals with domestic terrorist organizations while the second is devoted to those that operate internationally. The writings on domestic terrorism address topics such Neo-Nazi and Klan groups from an ethnographic perspective, the threat sovereign citizens pose to law enforcement officials, and militia movements. In the works on international terrorism readers learn about the evolution of Chechen terrorism, the Tamil Tigers, Palestinian terrorist groups, the Provisional Irish Republican Army, and Jeremiah Islamism and its affiliates.

Case Studies in Domestic and International Terrorist Organizations increases understanding of how domestic and international groups formed and evolved, and they currently operate. The book can serve as a stand-alone text or a supplemental reader for courses studying terrorism, international relations, or current events.
