Lynne L. Snowden, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor of Criminal Justice at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. She has published three books, Collective Violence (Allyn & Bacon) and Preventing Terrorism, 1st and 2nd eds (2002 & 2003) and numerous journal articles on violence, terrorism, policing, and other related topics. Dr. Snowden began her study of group violence and risk assessment when she worked with Dr. Henry Quarantelli at the Disaster Research Center of the University of Delaware, where she earned her doctorate. The extensive library of collective-violence topics, such as riots, rebellions, and cult behavior, and field data collected by Center researchers during the turbulent 60s on riots and anti-war protests helped her to develop a course on terrorism, cults, and hate groups that she continues to teach yearly. Recently her interest broadened to the study of homeland security since the topic combines her research in illegal migration, risk assessment of violent groups, and policing issues. Bradley C. Whitsel, Ph.D., earned his doctorate in political science at the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University. His research interests include terrorism, religion and politics, and cults/alternative religions. In addition to his journal publications in these areas, he has written a book on a major North American new religious movement, The Church Universal and Triumphant (Syracuse University Press, 2003). He is presently researching radical political and social movements at the University of Kansas Wilcox Collection for a new project on historic anti-statist groups in the United States.
