Synopsis

Effective counterterrorism requires a non-prejudicial understanding of terrorist motives and methods. Security professionals need to identify who terrorists might be, recognize pre-incident indicators of terrorist activity, and competently analyze intelligence information. Unfortunately, most terrorist education comes in short, sketchy briefings, and reliable sources for the foundational knowledge and tools necessary to prevent or mitigate an attack are rare and incomplete at best. The Latest Geopolitical Factors The second edition of Nance's bestselling Terrorist Recognition Handbook is fully updated with the latest information on geopolitical factors affecting global terrorism and regional insurgencies. An additional section includes analyses of transformations within Al Qaeda, coverage of the modern insurgency, and newly active global and regional terrorist groups. Thoroughly revised, the section on terrorist tactics reveals entirely new trends and attack methods that have been previously unseen.

Learn from the Expert Written by a 20 year veteran of the US intelligence community, this book is an invaluable training tool on how to identify an attack; how to mitigate damage from attacks; and how to recognize the stages of developing terrorist plots. It answers critical questions about who represents a threat, what opportunities are available for them to succeed, and what behaviors can be observed as they prepare for an attack? Quick Information in a Crisis Designed for rapid assimilation, each chapter can be read in any order. The no-nonsense style and numerous illustrations make it useful for quick identification of conventional weapons and weapons of mass destruction. Malcolm W. Nance, a 20 year veteran of the US intelligence community, has been deployed on anti-terrorism and intelligence operations in the Balkans, Middle East-including Iraq and Afghanistan-and sub-Saharan Africa. The book has an accompanying website with more information. The author has been interviewed frequently on various news programs and testified in Congress on the subject of terrorism. He also maintains a blog entitled Small Wars Journal.
