Combating Transnational Terrorism - edited and authored by GCMC Staff

Posted 2/24/2016

The primary aim of Combating Transnational Terrorism is to provide readers with a comprehensive foundation for the study of contemporary terrorism. In particular, it has been designed to support the GCMC’s long-running Program on Terrorism and Security Studies (PTSS). 

It is thus geared towards a global audience of security sector professionals–including many for whom English is a non-native language–but it will equally appeal to students of terrorism as well as interested general readers. Drawing upon the combined practical and academic experience of the authors, the book seeks to present complex topics in a way that is accessible for a broad, international audience.

This book is dedicated to the late Colonel Nick Pratt, founder of the PTSS. It includes 16 chapters and 32 case studies, and is divided into two parts – “Understanding the Threat” and “CounterTerrorism” – each containing eight chapters.


Read more about the different chapters and their authors below and on the publisher's webpage.
