compassion, caring, wisdom, and quick wit. Our journey
through this life is an adventure. Paige, for these and so
many other reasons, this book is lovingly dedicated to you.

Terrorism—Intelligence—Homeland Security are three subjects that often dominate today’s
news events. No other issues are so prominent, so compelling, or so critically important to
our communities and our nation than these three separate but interconnected topics. Nothing is more contemporary.
We are still dealing with the lingering effects of the attacks on September 11, 2001, an
event that clearly changed our world forever. On that day, our security weaknesses were
exploited, our vulnerability was exposed, and our fear became real. Approaching two decades after 9/11, we continue working to improve the security of our homeland from attack,
whether these attacks are from aircraft hijackings, the use of biological agents, or more
sophisticated cyber attempts to infiltrate crucial infrastructures. In this effort, we have sent
special operations troops to quell threats and train countries in responding to terrorism.
These countries include Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, Algeria, Somalia, Albania, Uruguay,
Uzbekistan, and the Philippines. More broadly, during 2017, special operations troops were
active in 138 countries.
We have expanded our intelligence-gathering and analysis capabilities to filter even our
largest social media sites. We have also developed entirely new departments of government
to protect us, and to respond to emergencies whether they be caused by man-made terrorist events or natural disasters. Billions of dollars have been spent in this effort to make
us safer. More important, our zeal to be safer and more secure has tested the limits of our
government and the basic democratic values of “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”
that underscore our country. Nothing is more important.
Hence, the decision to write this book was an easy one, inasmuch as we had previously collaborated for years on other coauthored books (Criminal Investigation and Police Administration: Structures: Processes, and Behavior). It was also an opportunity
to contribute to the discussion of some of the most important issues of our times. More
important, we thought there was room for a new book. In looking at the existing works,
they seemed somewhat disproportionately concentrated on historical aspects of terrorism
without discussing it sufficiently in a modern context. Other volumes focused on terrorism
without addressing homeland security or didn’t give enough attention to the basics, such
as “How did we get here?” Although interesting, edited volumes were typically too narrow
in scope.
We have written a book that is historical, contemporary, and exciting while also interrelating terrorism, intelligence, and homeland security. Our goal was to write a book that
focused on students—one that serves as an introductory textbook to this complex set of
topics. In doing that, we also produced a book that instructors will find easy to use.
This book has four elements that are of the utmost importance:
1. The book is written in a clear and concise manner, aimed at piquing student
interest and learning. We stay focused on our readers, providing them with both
interesting content and thought-provoking features. Embedded in the content are
Information Links to Internet sites that contain extended insights on important
topics. We wrote many case studies to illustrate chapter content and make it come
alive; and we filled each chapter with interesting pieces of information that were
directly aimed at sparking discussion. For instance, each Box ends with a compelling
question, and forces students to think about and discuss critical issues presented in
each chapter, while Quick Facts provide short doses of information that spark interest in the subject under discussion.
2. The book is compelling. This book is carefully researched and presents content from
the latest findings in the literature. As important, interviews with key leaders in the
A01_TAYL8146_02_SE_FM.indd 19 02/12/17 1:12 AM
xx Preface
intelligence field, heads of departments, agents within the FBI and members of local
task forces, as well as friends returning from battlefields in Iraq and Afghanistan provided keen insight into issues addressing the reality of combatting terrorism. Hence,
the book represents not only a strong scholarly approach to the study of terrorism, but
also incorporates the real-world experience of federal agents, police officers, and soldiers tasked with preventing the next terrorist attack on our country. In addition, the
photographs in each chapter were personally selected by the authors after careful attention to detailed research. To the best of our knowledge, none of these images have
previously been used in a college textbook. The pictures command attention and are
accompanied by carefully written captions that tell a story, adding value to each image.
3. The book is simultaneously historical and contemporary. We believed it was
essential for readers to understand the background of people, ideas, organizations,
and movements. At the same time, readers are provided with current information
about new issues in the field. This approach provides readers with a unified and
cutting-edge understanding of terrorism, intelligence, and homeland security
and their interrelationship. For instance, readers learn not only about the Islamic
State, a newly emerged terrorist organization in the Middle East, but also about the
historical factors that led to its development and how the international community is
responding to this new international threat.
4. The book is well organized and has unique chapters. The book is divided into four
separate parts. Part One provides a solid framework in which to understand terrorism. Because some significant threats originate in the Middle East, we provide strong
chapters that explain the geography, history, culture, and religion of this complex
area. We give significant time to understanding the complexities of Islam and the
rise of radicalization in chapters that are well written and easy to read. Part Two
focuses on terrorist groups, their organization, and their critical processes. These are
important foundational chapters that provide unique interdisciplinary discussions
on terrorist structures and strategies such as recruitment and retention of members,
lone wolf strategies, and suicide bombing attacks. We provide strong chapters that
differentiate among state-involved terrorism, single-issue terrorism, separatist or nationalist movements, and terrorism from the left and right wings. In Part Three, we
discuss America’s vulnerabilities to terrorism and present the governmental agencies
that are tasked with preventing terrorism. We discuss the intelligence community
and the myriad Constitutional issues that have sparked controversy in our country
through the USA PATRIOT Act (e.g., clandestine spying on U.S. citizens, the use of
drones, “enhanced” interrogation techniques and the abuse or torture of prisoners,
and use of the military in preventing terrorism domestically). In every case, we tried
to provide a balanced approach to understanding the issues that we face as a nation,
providing security from real threats while still safeguarding civil and personal liberties. And finally, in Part Four, we define the forces that combat terrorism on a daily
basis. In a one-of-a-kind chapter, we focus on those agencies that have anti-terrorism
or counterterrorism as part of their primary missions. Again, the emphasis here is on
clarity and the provision of pinpoint information in an easy-to-read format.

This section is not a table of contents, but rather an informative dialogue highlighting each
chapter of the book.
We did not write a comprehensive history of terrorism chapter, although the first and
second chapters have an overview of some of its milestones. It seemed more useful to write
shorter history sections in the context of the content of chapters, linking the past and the
present together to bring meaning to contemporary issues. This second edition has many
new and updated sections, photographs, informational links, box items, quick facts, and
case histories. A number of learning objectives and related features have been rewritten to
reflect these changes.
Chapter 1: Defining, Conceptualizing, and Understanding
This chapter introduces the subject of terrorism and some of the topics and issues that are
explored in more detail in later chapters. In the introduction section, reasons why it is important or perhaps essential to understand terrorism are identified, for example, challenges
such as the emerging tactic of system disruption and Black Swan events that are so different
they will be difficult to predict, but will impact us nonetheless.
A01_TAYL8146_02_SE_FM.indd 21 02/12/17 1:12 AM
xxii Preface
There was terrorism before we had a name for it. To this day scholars, governments, and
international organizations, such as the United Nations, struggle to find a common definition
of terrorism. One barrier to understanding terrorism is the surplus of competing and conflicting definitions. The chapter also addresses how our individual and cultural perspectives
affect how we think about terrorism and create barriers to understanding it. The chapter
concludes by contrasting war and war crimes, irregular war, and terrorism.
Chapter 2: Political Ideology and the Historical
Roots of Terrorism
Chapter 2 is a foundational chapter for the entire book. It represents a significant work on
the historical development of terrorist ideology. The chapter begins with a discussion of
political ideology as the general belief system on which society is based and the mechanisms people undertake to achieve this perspective. Terrorism has a direct effect on the
social structure of society. People depend on a framework of informal and formal rules
that foster mutual respect and trust. Terrorism substitutes this trust with insecurity and
fear. Essentially, terrorism attacks the very bases of social order, culture, and government.
Chapter 2 explores the political and social theory that motivates certain groups—from the
genesis of revolutionary ideology and terror to contemporary hate crime and radical Islamic
movements. We start with the historic left-wing ideologies of socialism and communism as
expressed by Karl Marx, Fredrick Engels, Pierre-Joseph Proudhon, and Vladimir Lenin in
Europe and Russia at the end of the 19th century and trace ideological ties to more contemporary perspectives of revolution in South America and the Middle East as expressed
by Che Guevara, Carlos Marighella, and Sayyid Qutb. A focus on the development of Latin
American leftist groups like FARC and ELN in Colombia, the Tupamaros in Uruguay, and
Sendero Luminoso (Shining Path) in Peru brings our discussion to the concept of a “guerrilla war” as part of a revolutionary strategy in some cases, and as terrorism in others. We
also explore the development of the “new left” in Europe during the 1960s, including the
Red Brigades, the Red Army Faction (also known as the Baader-Meinhof Gang), the Revolutionary Cells, and its feminist-leaning auxiliary group, the Red Zora, bringing us full circle
from the inception of left-wing, political revolutionary thought to more contemporary antiimperialist and anticolonial ideology.
The final part of this chapter focuses on the historical roots of terrorism in the Middle
East, from early anticolonial ideology and the mandate system developed at the end of
World War I to the establishment of Israel and the beginning of the Palestinian Resistance
movement. The chapter sets up Chapter 3 by exploring the early tenets of oil, politics, and
radical Islam in the modern era.
Chapter 3: Understanding the Middle East and Islam
This book has five sets of chapters that are so closely intertwined we think of them as “twin
chapters.” Chapters 3 and 4 are the first set of the “twins.” In Chapter 3, we start with the
assertion that knowing some history of the Middle East, a few laws, and a handful of definitions is not sufficient grounding to assert one has a grasp on the Middle East and Islam.
The chapter provides a basic understanding of Islam, but there is more to be learned. To
fully understand the Middle East, you must also fully understand Islam. Illustratively, some
critics maintain that the “problem” with Islam is that it has never undergone a reformation,
as has Christianity. The Muslim view is there has never been a need for it. In their view,
the Archangel Gabriel revealed the Word of God to Muhammad and he, in turn, faithfully
recorded it. While ideological change in Islam has not been an historical issue, certainly
leadership after the death of the Prophet has been. Understanding the emergence of two
Muslim traditions, Sunni and Shi’a, provides a basis for comprehending not only the historical differences between these two groups, but also sets a foundation on which to grasp more
contemporary concepts of radical Islam and the Islamic State caliphate that now threaten
the entire Middle East.
The vast majority of Muslims in America are good and decent people who practice their
religion peacefully. Some Islamic religious leaders have twisted the meanings of Islamic
A01_TAYL8146_02_SE_FM.indd 22 02/12/17 1:12 AM
Preface xxiii
concepts. For instance, “jihad” actually refers to an individual’s struggle to overcome adversity and submit to the will of God. Jihad addresses an inner, spiritual struggle against evil,
not a war against others. The twisted definition of jihad fuels hatred, violence, and grisly
actions, such as the recent beheadings and executions of American journalists, English aid
workers, and others by members of the Islamic State.
The concluding section of the chapter ends with an explanation of Islam’s five pillars
of faith: (1) Shahada (testimony of faith); (2) Salat (prayer); (3) Zakat (giving a portion
of your annual income to those in need and to support Islam); (4) Sawm (fasting); and (5)
Hajj (pilgrimage to Mecca).
Chapter 4: The Rise of Radical Islam
Islam is one of the world’s great religions. Like Judaism and Christianity, it is one of the three
primary monotheistic religions, meaning it is a religion that believes in one all-loving and
powerful God. The histories of these three great religions are inseparably intertwined. So
what events took place within Islam that led to such a vast radicalization of basic principles
within the religion? This chapter explores that change and focuses on the political dimension of Islamic fundamentalism. It analyzes the radicalization of Islam in both traditions,
Sunni and Shia (Shiite). Much of the discussion is centered on the Arab Revolution beginning after World War I and culminating in the Arab Spring of 2010, the ideologies that form
major radical movements in today’s Sunni tradition—the Wahhabi movement, the Muslim
Brotherhood, the Salafi movement, and the Jihadist-Salafi movement. Each is discussed in
terms of their primary philosophical leader and the contemporary evolution of the movement today as visible throughout the Middle East.
The radicalization of Sunni Islam has been an historic process, led by a number of key
individuals. The chapter is laced with boxed items and commentary that provide a basic
understanding of the historical complexities associated with radical Islam as proscribed
by philosophical leaders such as Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab, Hassan al-Banna, Sayyid
Qutb, Ahmed Yassin, Abdul Rahman, Ahman al-Zawahiri, Usama bin Laden, Abu Musab
al-Zarqawi, and Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, as well as active Sunni groups, such as the Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas), al-Qaeda, al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula
(AQIP), Abu Sayaaf, and the Islamic State. The latter group, the Islamic State, is given additional attention in this chapter, particularly focusing on the ruthless violence stemming
from extremist interpretations of early Muslim ideology originating from Wahhabi and Salafi
doctrine. Known as Takfiri Practices, or the excommunication from Islam, the radical Islamic State claims the right to label other Muslims to whom they object as “unbelievers,”
justifying the violent torture and execution (beheadings, crucifixions, rape, burning, hanging, and shooting) of innocent individuals throughout the Middle East.
The final part of the chapter addresses the radicalization of the Shia (or Shiite) tradition
within Islam, concentrating on the ideologies expressed by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini
during the Iranian Revolution of 1979. His thoughts provide the ideological foundation for
today’s Islamic Republic of Iran. The other primary Shia group discussed in this chapter is
that of Hezbollah, under the leadership of Hassan Nasrallah, a group active throughout the
world but centered in Lebanon.
Chapter 5: Terrorist Organizations and Structures
Chapters 5 and 6 are the second set of “twin chapters” in that they are interrelated: Both
focus on terrorist organizations. Chapter 5 largely deals with how these groups are arranged and Chapter 6 scrutinizes the processes with which terrorist organizations operate. Organizational theory is a tool that explains how formal organizations are structured
and relate to their environment. It can be applied to such disparate entities as General
Motors, the New York Times, Girl Scouts, concentration camps, Red Cross, Hamas, and
the Department of Defense. In Chapter 5, organizational theory is the lens by which we
examine and explain the structure of terrorist organizations. We do so without requiring
readers to learn, or be conversant with, organizational theory because this book is on a
different subject.
A01_TAYL8146_02_SE_FM.indd 23 02/12/17 1:12 AM
xxiv Preface
The application of organizational theory to terrorist structures can provide important
information about them. It reveals how authority is distributed, how work will be accomplished, and some indication of their relative importance of leaders.
Other topics in Chapter 5 include dilemmas of terrorist organizations, types of terrorist
cells, organizational structures used by terrorists (such as hierarchical, umbrella, and virtual), the selection of targets, suicide bombing attacks, and how terrorist organizations end.
The literature on how terrorist organizations end does not contemplate a movement that
ends in a caliphate, despite the Islamic State’s aspirations.
Chapter 6: Critical Processes of Terrorist Organizations
In this chapter we shift our analysis from how terrorist organizations are organized to essentially asking the question, “What does it take for a terrorist organization to be successful
administratively and operationally?”
Like many other types of organizations, terrorists need administrative or organizational
tools, which are the things they must accomplish to foster the organization’s viability. To be
operationally successful terrorists must have command of these operational tools. Chapter
6 covers these topics with examples and case studies. One of the organizational tools discussed is the financing of the group, with special attention given to funding via hawalas,
narcotics trafficking, and other criminal activities, sponsorships and donations, charities,
and even the trading of Bitcoins.
Chapter 7: Typologies of Terrorism: State-Involved and
Single or Special Issue Movements
Chapters 7 and 8 are another set of “twin chapters,” both dealing with typologies of terrorism. To avoid having one very long chapter we wrote two shorter chapters. We logically
grouped movements in those chapters not by geography, but by their ideologies. Typologies
logically group things, such as terrorist movements. In contrast, taxonomies create groups
based on statistical analysis. We used typologies because there is insufficient data to create
full taxonomies of terrorism. The history of each identified terrorist group is covered, and
Chapters 7 and 8 are replete with examples and case studies to provide concrete meaning.
Chapter 7 scrutinizes four types of terrorism in which the political state is involved: state
terrorism, state-enabled terrorism, state-sponsored terrorism, and state-perpetrated/international terrorism. By and large, single/special-issue terrorism is still a concern, but toward
the lower end of the threat scale. “Fading” may be a reasonable description of these movements, which include the Animal Liberation Front (ALF), Earth Liberation Front (ALF),
and Anti-Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) groups, which oppose “frankenfood.”
Chapter 8: Typologies of Terrorism: The Right and Left
Wings and Separatist or Nationalist Movements
A large portion of this chapter covers right-wing groups, which envision having a homogenous “racially pure” country. All right-wing groups have in common “enemies” such as the
“Zionist Occupied Government” (ZOG); illegal immigrants; people of color; and lesbians,
gay, bisexual, transgender people, and those questioning their sexual identity (LGBTQ).
Having a group to oppose promotes in-group solidarity, which helps to perpetuate the existence of right-wing movements (e.g., Hitler used the Jews for this purpose and the English
Defence League targets Muslims). Right-wing movements in America include the Ku Klux
Klan, neo-Nazis, and the anti-federalist/Christian Patriot groups.
Left-wing groups identified globally in the chapter include Sendero Luminoso (Shining
Path) in Peru; the Red Army Faction (RAF) that operated mainly in Germany, but also in
France, Switzerland, and the Netherlands; the Red Brigades in Italy; Revolutionary Armed
Forces of Colombia (FARC); the Seung Fein in China; and the Weather Underground in the
United States. The left wing historically has been unsuccessful in achieving its goal: replacing existing governments with ones that are based on Marxist-Leninist principles.
A01_TAYL8146_02_SE_FM.indd 24 02/12/17 1:12 AM
Preface xxv
Separatist/nationalist movements are typically subnational groups who want a homeland. The groups often share a common culture, language, and history. Examples include
the Kurdistan Workers Party, the Tamil Tigers, the Eritrean Liberation Front, and the Second Vermont Republic. Ireland’s drive to become an independent country is discussed, as
are the similarities between the Anglo-Irish War and the American Revolution.
Chapter 9: Intelligence and Terrorism
Chapters 9 and 10 represent yet another set of “twins.” In Chapter 9, we define intelligence
and counterintelligence and, more important, we define plaguing questions that continue to
impede our ability to prevent terrorism. For instance, the final report of a Congressional Advisory Panel after 9/11, commonly known as the Gilmore Commission, identified several issues
relating to the failure of the intelligence community to prevent terrorism. These included a
failure to provide timely, accurate, and specific intelligence information to law enforcement,
security, and military agencies, as well as an overly bureaucratic and decentralized structure
(particularly within the FBI) that hindered a unified and coordinated effort between federal
and local agencies to address the terrorist threat. While some of these issues continue, the
intelligence community has worked hard to overcome many of these obstacles. More recent
controversies involving the uneasy alliance between President Donald Trump and the intelligence community are also discussed in this chapter, with special attention given to the
replacement (firing) of NSA Director Michael Flynn and FBI Director James Comey.
We address the complexity of the intelligence community in Chapter 9, defining the
agencies involved in the intelligence community, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the National Security Agency (NSA),
and the relatively new roles of the Office of National Intelligence and the National Counterterrorism Center. We also present an overview of other agencies within the intelligence
community and explore “fusion centers,” which have become common entities at the state
and local level aimed at better coordinating the intelligence efforts among all divisions of
government—federal, state, tribal, county, and city.
Chapter 10: Intelligence, Terrorism, and the U.S.
In Chapter 10, we address head-on the issues that surround the use of intelligence and
intelligence gathering as a tool to prevent terrorism that seem to dot our newspapers on a
near weekly basis. We closely examine the USA PATRIOT Act and discuss specific incidents
that question and, in some cases, answer how far our government should go to protect
our citizens. Specifically, we discuss the conflicts between the PATRIOT Act, the Freedom
Act, and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) and the First, Fourth, and Fifth
Amendments to the U.S. Constitution as related to the practice of extraordinary rendition,
“enhanced” interview techniques and torture of suspected terrorist prisoners, the use of the
military to supplement civilian police in conflict to the Posse Comitatus Act, police agencies
that infiltrate political and religious groups that clearly blurs the line between policing and
intelligence gathering, and the use of drones as both an offensive weapon in the Middle East
and as a spying tool domestically. These issues and others are discussed in light of current
events and the highlighted cases involving Bradley/Chelsea Manning, WikiLeaks, and
Edward Snowden.
Chapter 11: Homeland Security
Eleven days after the 9/11 attacks, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Ridge was appointed as the
first director of the Office of Homeland Security by President George W. Bush. His job was
to develop, oversee, and coordinate a new, comprehensive national strategy to safeguard the
country against terrorism and respond to any future attacks. Over a year later, on November 25,
2002, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was created as a stand-alone agency,
composed of 22 different preexisting federal agencies. It was the largest reorganization of the
federal bureaucracy since the National Security Act of 1947. Chapter 11 provides an overview
A01_TAYL8146_02_SE_FM.indd 25 02/12/17 1:12 AM
xxvi Preface
of the key agencies assigned to DHS, such as the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG), U.S. Citizenship
and Immigration Services (USCIS), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Customs
and Border Protection (CBP), Transportation Security Administration (TSA), U.S. Secret Service, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The chapter explores each
agency’s role in fulfilling the core homeland security mission of preventing terrorism and enhancing the security of the United States.
Chapter 12: America’s Vulnerability to Terrorism
Chapters 12 and 13 represent our final set of “twin” chapters. They are slightly different from the other sets as they are not extensions of the same subject matter, but rather
complements to each other. In Chapter 12, we discuss openly America’s vulnerability to
terrorism. We define “critical infrastructure” and focus our work around the National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP) that provides a framework in which to discuss potential
target sites and give a reasonable risk assessment for each of the 16 sectors identified in
NIPP. The discussion in Chapter 12 is all about “prevention” now, before an event, and providing an “all-hazard” plan that protects critical resources and human life from any kind of
catastrophe, disease, or disaster regardless of causation, natural (e.g., flood, fire, hurricane,
tornado, or earthquake) or man-made (e.g., terrorist strike; large cyber attack; mass shooting at a school, mall, or sporting event; or surprise attack from a foreign government). In
Chapter 13, our discussion moves from prevention to response and mitigation—the effort to
reduce loss of life and property by lessening the impact of such an event.
Chapter 13: Emergency Management
While FEMA is the key federal agency for the emergency management of a terrorist attack or natural disaster after the event, a myriad of other agencies have specific roles in
responding to and recovering from a disaster. For instance, the coordination of local relief
agencies, food banks, shelters, and the like fall within the FEMA management guidelines,
while specific responses to public health issues from open sewage lines, biological agents,
or even radiation may be more appropriately handled by another agency such as the Center
for Disease Control (CDC), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), or the Nuclear
Regulatory Commission (NRC)—all of which are discussed in Chapter 13.
The chapter provides a strong historical piece on the evolution of emergency management culminating in an in-depth discussion on our current National Preparedness System.
We address the possibilities of significant attack from weapons of mass destruction and
CBRNE-borne weapons, and more important, the formal mechanisms of the Incident Command System that are currently in place to address such an unspeakable event—from local
and state perspectives to specific federal roles. Chapters 12 and 13 discuss America’s defensive posture (i.e., planning, preventing, mitigating, and responding to a critical terrorist
strike or disaster), setting up Chapter 14: Combatting Terrorism.
Chapter 14: Combatting Terrorism
There is an important distinction between anti-terrorism (AT) and counterterrorism (CT).
At the risk of oversimplification, the former is largely composed of defensive actions, while
the latter centers on offensive operations. Chapter 14 addresses AT and CT on the basis of
a cross-section of the organizations that are executing those respective kinds of missions,
although it must be noted that some of them perform both AT and CT activities. With respect to these activities, the military, federal agencies, state and local governments, and law
enforcement agencies are covered. The role of the military is given substantial attention because of the array of units involved and their important contributions to America’s national
security. The chapter also examines types of action that can be taken against terrorists,
including raids and direct action. Military deployments are determined by national strategy,

that have been established.

Preface xxvii
Chapter 15: Terrorism, Intelligence, and Homeland
Security: The Future
This concluding chapter of the book ties the subject matters of terrorism, intelligence, and
homeland security together and identifies recent trends in terrorist activities. Many of the
past attacks in the United States have been carried out by homegrown terrorists using
lone wolf terrorist tactics. These events have been mostly bombings or spree shootings
using very crude and nonsophisticated weapons. Internationally, while al-Qaeda appears
to be weakening and fractionalizing as a single group, radical Islamic ideology appears
to be dramatically increasing throughout the Middle East and the rest of the world with
the emergence of the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq. While America has been victimized
repeatedly by attacks on our transportation sector (particularly the airline industry), attacks that are cyber in nature pose a much more significant threat in the future. Much of
our critical infrastructure—including water systems, power grids, gas pipelines, nuclear
power functions, and financial and communication networks—were built long before the
specter of terrorism was a consideration and contain weak defenses against potential attacks by terrorists, rogue nations, or even sophisticated criminals. Indeed, rather than
focusing on attacks that raise the public hysteria, such as attacks from weapons of mass
destruction (WMD), it might be more prudent to assume that the next major terrorist attack may be cyber in nature.
The final chapter also includes an important segment on the role of the media during terrorist events and the impact of such events on the mind of the general public.
Our concluding remarks in Chapter 15 focus not on the significant dangers and potential
threats that lurk in an unstable world, but rather on the richness, strength, diversity, and
resilience of America as we confront the future together, no different than generations
before us.

Although it is insufficient compensation for their gracious assistance, we would like to recognize here the individuals who helped make this book a reality. Many good friends at “three
letter agencies” and the military, all of whom wish to remain unnamed, read several chapters
and made cogent comments, for which we are grateful. Several provided up-to-date information on issues relating to the Middle East as the chapters were being written.
Ms. Jennifer Davis-Lamm provided ongoing research and contribution to several chapters. We are forever indebted for her services. Mr. Jason Lane greatly assisted with research
on Chapter 12: America’s Vulnerability to Terrorism and Chapter 13: Emergency Management. Dr. Kelley Stone contributed to Chapter 13 as well, and allowed us to draw upon his
excellent knowledge of fusion centers in Chapter 9: Intelligence and Terrorism. A special
“thank you” to our good friend and Bob’s former graduate student, Dr. Ahmet Yayla, former
Chief of Counterterrorism and Operations Division for the Turkish National Police (TNP) and
the coauthor of a new exciting book entitled ISIS Defectors: Inside Stories of the Terrorist
Caliphate (Washington, D.C.: Advances Press, July 2016), with Dr. Anne Speckhard. Ahmet
and Anne graciously provided several photos for this book as well as their keen insight into
the Islamic State. Dr. Sulyman Ozeren, Dr. Samih Teymur, and Dr. Mustafa Ozgular, again
from the Turkish National Police, assisted in writing and developing Chapters 3 and 4. Their
knowledge and patience greatly helped us understand the foundations as well as the historical evolution of Islam as presented in Chapter 3: Understanding the Middle East and Islam
and Chapter 4: The Rise of Radical Islam. Mr. Zeeshan Syed proofread Chapters 3 and 4 for
accuracy, and Ms. Amy Kryzak proofed the entire first edition through Grammarly. Last,
but certainly not least, Bob’s close friend and colleague, Dr. Galia Cohen, edited the entire
manuscript for Pearson, providing a solid foundation and wonderful direction for the book.
Her suggestions were invaluable to this edition.
Paige Cummings, Traci Swanson, and Kellie Pless also read and commented on the chapters, improving them. Our longstanding friend, Leonard Territo, went through materials
very carefully, catching lapses. The Federal Bureau of Investigation provided photos, and we
are appreciative of the speed with which they responded to our requests.
We would like to thank the following reviewers for their comments and suggestions: Salih Hakan Can, Penn State University – Schuylkill Campus; Brian LeBlanc, Rivier University;
Deborah Louis, Eastern Kentucky University; Pamela Mertens, Northeastern State University; James O’Sullivan, Pace University; John Padgett, Capella University; Carlos Parker,
Cumberland County College; Jennifer Estis-Sumerel, Itawamba Community College; and
Lisa Ann Zanglin, Auburn University – Montgomery.
Lastly, we would like to thank our editors. Ms. Elisa Rogers, our developmental editor,
has just been wonderful during this entire project. Thank you, Elisa, for your time, energy,
and patience. And, thank you to our managing editor, Mr. Gary Bauer, for his continued
guidance and support. He was willing to “go to bat” for us on numerous occasions. We truly
hope this book realizes his expectations. It has been a pleasure working with him, as well as
the entire Pearson team.

Robert W. Taylor is currently a tenured full Professor in the Department of Criminology
and Criminal Justice at The University of Texas at Dallas. The Department was recently
ranked fifth in the world in academic excellence based on the strength of its Ph.D. program. Previous to this position, he was the Director of the Executive Masters in Justice
Administration and Leadership Program and the former program Head for the Public Affairs
Program at UT-Dallas. Both are academic programs integrating the traditions of management, governmental affairs, policy analysis, and decision science in the public sector. The
Public Affairs Program hosted one of the largest graduate degree programs on campus, including Doctoral (Ph.D.) and Master’s Degrees in Public Affairs and Public Administration.
From January 2008 through 2010, Bob was the Executive Director of the W.W. Caruth
Jr. Police Institute at Dallas (CPI). The Institute was established through a $9.5 million
grant from the Communities Foundation of Texas. Bob was a principal party to the development of the Institute and was appointed the founding director by the University of North
Texas System. The primary mission of the Institute is to provide direction and coordination of major training and research projects for the Dallas Police Department. The Institute
represents a national “think tank” on policing strategies focused on major urban cities
in the United States. He remains a “Scholar-in-Residence” at the Institute. From 1996 to
2008, Bob was professor and chair of the Department of Criminal Justice at the University
of North Texas. He served in this capacity for thirteen years, and under his direction the
Department gained national prominence, especially with the establishment of the Caruth
Police Institute.
In 1995, Dr. Taylor took a leave of absence from university administration and teaching
to join Emergency Resources International, Inc., the parent company of the famed “Red
Adair” firefighters. His duties as Senior Vice-President, Crisis Management Division, included liaison with foreign governments and authorities, extensive contract negotiations, and
the strategic development of a worldwide communication and information system. Bob’s
major project was acting as team leader on the largest oil spill in history (3 million barrels),
located in the remote Nenets District of Russia, over 200 miles north of the Arctic Circle.
For the past forty years, Dr. Taylor has studied criminal justice administration and specifically police responses to crime and terrorism, focusing on issues in the Middle East. He
has traveled extensively throughout the Middle East, meeting several heads of state in that
region. He has acted as a consultant to numerous federal, state, and local agencies, and
since September 11, 2001, Bob has been a consultant to the U.S. Department of Justice
working with the Institute for Intergovernmental Research (IIR) as a lead instructor in the
State and Local Anti-Terrorism Training Program (SLATT). Bob has also worked extensively
throughout the Middle East, especially in the country of Turkey. He has been an instructor
for the U.S. Department of State, Anti-Terrorism Assistance (ATA) Program (2001–2006)
and taught internationally in the Executive Seminar on Cyber Terrorism presented to executives of foreign governments. Dr. Taylor holds appropriate top secret national security
clearances through the JPASS system (archived).
Dr. Taylor has authored or coauthored over 200 articles, books, and manuscripts. Most
of his publications focus on police administration and management, police procedures, international and domestic terrorism, drug trafficking, and criminal justice policy. His articles
appear in numerous journals, including Defense Analysis (University of Oxford, England
Press), the ANNALS (American Academy of Political and Social Sciences), Police Quarterly, Crime and Delinquency, and the Police Chief (International Association of Chiefs of Police). Dr. Taylor is coauthor of two leading textbooks, Police Administration: Structures,
Processes, and Behavior (Upper Saddle River, NJ: Pearson Publishing, 2017), currently in
its 9th edition, and Criminal Investigation (New York: McGraw-Hill, 2018), currently in its

12th edition. These texts are used in over 500 universities, colleges, and police departments
throughout the United States. He is also the senior author of Juvenile Justice: Policies,
Practices, and Programs (McGraw-Hill, 2014) in its 4th edition, Digital Crime and Digital
Terrorism (Pearson, 2018) in its 4th edition, and Police Patrol Allocation and Deployment
(Pearson, 2011).
Dr. Taylor has an extensive background in academic and professional criminal justice,
having taught at four major universities and serving as a sworn police officer and major
crimes detective (lateral rank of sergeant) in Portland, Oregon, for over six years.
In 1984, Bob was appointed as a Research Fellow at the International Center for the
Study of Violence at the University of South Florida, Tampa, Florida, conducting various
studies involving international and domestic terrorism, police training and management,
public violence and homicide, computerized mapping, and international drug trafficking.
He continues to conduct research in these areas and is the recipient of numerous grants
and contracts (over $18 million in funded projects). His latest work is concentrated in four
areas: (1) quality improvement in police agencies through advanced leadership and management practices; (2) international terrorism, especially Middle-Eastern groups, and the
spread of radical Islam; (3) evaluation of community policing, CompStat, and intelligenceled policing strategies in the United States; and (4) intelligence analysis, fusion centers, and
decision making, particularly during protracted conflict or crisis situations.
In 2004, the International Justice Mission in Washington, D.C., asked Bob to assist in the
training of the Cambodian National Police on child sex slavery and human trafficking as part
of a large project funded through the U.S. Department of State ($1 million). His interest
and research in this area have led to a leadership role in designing and developing training
efforts in the United States aimed at raising awareness of the human trafficking tragedy for
American law enforcement officers, funded in part through the U.S. Department of Justice.
Dr. Taylor focuses on the nexus between human trafficking, drug trafficking, and the financing of terrorist incidents internationally and domestically. He continues this important work
as a guest lecturer, speaking at conferences internationally on these subjects.
In 2003, Dr. Taylor was awarded the University of North Texas, Regent’s Lecture Award
for his work in the Middle East. In March 2008, the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences
presented Bob with the prestigious O.W. Wilson Award “in recognition of his outstanding
contribution to police education, research and practice.”
Dr. Taylor has been a consultant to the U.S. Army, the U.S. Marine Corps, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the U.S. Department of Treasury, Federal Law Enforcement
Training Center, the U.S. Secret Service, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, the
U.S. Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Drug Enforcement
Administration, the Police Foundation, the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF), the
International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), and numerous state and local municipalities and private corporations. He has also conducted significant training in the United
States protectorates of the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, and Saipan, and the countries of
Canada, England, France, Switzerland, Thailand, Cambodia, Barbados, Northern Cyprus,
Bahrain, Venezuela, Russia, Finland, United Arab Emirates, Kenya, Singapore, and Turkey.
He is an active member of the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences (elected National Chair
of the ACJS Police Section – 2002), the American Society for Public Administration, and the
American Society of Criminology.
Dr. Taylor is a graduate of Michigan State University (Master of Science, 1973) and Portland State University (Doctor of Philosophy, 1981).

About the Authors xxxv
Charles R. “Mike” Swanson enlisted in the Marine Corps when he was 17 years old, subsequently working as Patrol Officer and Detective with the Tampa Police Department. He
joined Florida Governor Claude Kirk’s staff as a Senior Police Planner and later as Deputy
Director of the Governor’s Council on Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice. Mike taught
criminal justice courses at East Carolina University before becoming a faculty member at
the Institute of Government (IOG) at the University of Georgia. Faculty members in the
IOG are charged with carrying out programs of research, training, and technical assistance
for Georgia units of state and local government. Mike specialized in reorganization of police
departments to achieve enhanced performance.
For much of his 29 years in the IOG, Mike focused on three efforts:
1. Designing promotional systems for police and fire departments. Notably, he led a
large city police department and a state patrol agency out of federal court, creating
promotional systems that are still used and have not been successfully challenged.
Mike has designed hundreds of valid and reliable written promotional tests and assessment center exercises. He has trained hundreds of assessors and directed more
than 50 assessment centers.
2. Training. As Director of the IOG’s Southeastern Law Enforcement Programs, he
created and led advanced training programs for more than 10,000 officers from 46
states and 4 foreign countries.
3. Partnering with police departments to foster improvements. Virtually on a daily
basis for 29 years, Mike worked with police departments to resolve smaller to largescale problems, often acting as a change agent. On a larger scale, he conducted
analyses that were the basis of his reorganization of units or entire police agencies,
as well as the consolidation of a large city police department with a county police
agency. Many of Mike’s more than 100 technical reports were written to support his
work in this area.
Mike advanced through the administrative ranks of the IOG, Program Director, Division
Director, Deputy Director, and retired as the Acting Director. His home is in Athens, Georgia,
a musical hot spot with several internationally known bands residing there. One of his more
unusual consulting jobs was advising a major touring band on how to recover a member’s
stolen guitar.
In addition to conference papers, refereed articles, and chapters in books, Mike has coauthored several books, including The Police Personnel Selection Process, Introduction to
Criminal Justice, Court Administration, Police Administration: Structures, Processes,
and Behavior (9th edition, 2017), and Criminal Investigation (12th edition, 2018).
Mike has received an array of recognitions, including a Distinguished Service Award
and the Walter Bernard Hill Award from the University of Georgia, commendations from
the governors of three states for contributions to public service, the O.W. Wilson Award for
Distinguished Scholarship, a Service Award from the Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police,
as well as receiving their First Honorary Chief of Police Award for service to that organization. As a consultant, Mike has worked with police agencies as far apart as the Elizabeth,
New Jersey, Police Department, the Dallas Police Department, and the Multnomah County
(Oregon) Department of Public Safety. He has also taught abroad in the Shanghai Municipal
Institute. In 2016, Mike was honored as a Distinguished Alumni of Florida State University’s
College of Criminology and Criminal Justice.
He received bachelor and masters degrees in criminology from Florida State University
and a Ph.D. in Political Science, with a concentration in public administration, from the
University of Georgia.
