Homegrown: The New Age of Terrorism provides students with a concise and accessible introduction to modern-day terrorism related to the motivations, tactics, and strategies of domestic acts of terror.

The text is organized into eight chapters. The opening chapters introduce contemporary terrorism and extremism as it exists in the United States. A special emphasis is placed on the radicalization process that leads to extremist ideologies and the differences between random and tactical terror activities. Additional chapters cover terrorist organizations and their ideologies, sources of terrorist financing, human trafficking, and cyberterrorism. Students learn about the structure and history of extremist organizations such as the Aryan Brotherhood and how these groups contribute to gang violence in both communities and correctional systems. The final chapter consists of case studies that provide an overview of high-profile terrorist attacks and promote the opportunity for classroom discussion.

Designed to help students consider and develop strategies for fighting terror within the United States, Homegrown is an ideal supplemental textbook for courses in criminal justice, political science, military science, and terrorism.
