While there is no easy way to define terrorism, it may generally be viewed as a method of violence in which civilians are targeted with the objective of forcing a perceived enemy into submission by creating fear, demoralization, and political friction in the population under attack. At one time a marginal field of study in the social sciences, terrorism is now very much in center stage. The 1970s terrorist attacks by the PLO, the Provisional Irish Republican Army, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, the Japanese Red Army, the Unabomber, Aum Shinrikyo, Timothy McVeigh, the World Trade Center attacks, the assault on a school in Russia, and suicide bombers have all made the term terrorism an all-too-common part of our vocabulary.This edition of Political Terrorism was originally published in the 1980s, well before some of the horrific events noted above. This monumental collection of definitions, conceptual frameworks, paradigmatic formulations, and bibliographic sources is being reissued in paperback now as a resource for the expanding community of researchers on the subject of terrorism. This is a carefully constructed guide to one of the most urgent issues of the world today.When the first edition was originally published, Choice noted, This extremely useful reference tool should be part of any serious social science collection. Chronicles of Culture called it a tremendously comprehensive book about a subject that any who have anything to lose--from property to liberty, life to limbs--should be forewarned against.

Terrorism is a thoroughly researched collection of information on how to prevent, avoid, cope with, recover from, and analyze criminal kidnapping and hostage-taking. Filled with the stories of successful hostages, along with statistics from intelligence files and international reports, this book is intended as a scholarly yet practical approach to this world-wide issue. The author interviews well-known former hostages, such as David Dodge, General and Mrs. James Dozier, Richard Grover, Gordon Kennedy, Larry and Sis Levin, Roy Libby, Bruce Olson and Lloyd Van Vactor. Based on fifteen years of research and Quarles' experience as a negotiator for missionaries taken hostage, Terrorism is a book that is appropriate for political theorists as well as those in the field.

The Violence Volcano is for managers and workers in all types of business and government organizations, including law enforcement and other first-responders. Its purpose is to assist all organizations and their employees in fulfilling their obligations under U.S. Government regulations to reduce the risks of any and all forms of violence that affect workers during the time they are carrying out their duties as employees. The Violence Volcano is written at an appropriate level for either self-study, training programs, or classroom settings. It could be used as a supplement in business, educational administration, criminal justice and law enforcement classes, or other academic and trade programs. Key features of the book: • Uses the volcano metaphor to provide a simple and unique way to help readers under stand and remember how violence builds. • Provides a broader approach than other books toward recognizing and dealing with the issue of workplace violence, including both internal and external causes as well as signs of impending acts of violence. • Identifies and discusses the nature and complexity of violence in a variety of workplaces. • Helps management compare violence prevention costs with the immediate and direct costs plus the delayed and hidden costs of violent incidents at work. • Helps management, employees, and law enforcement personnel recognize environmental and organizational influences on employee behavior. • Helps management and employees develop an awareness of personal characteristics and work behaviors that build toward violent behavior, so that timely intervention can perhaps eliminate the threat of violence. • Assists management in establishing a crisis management team, an organizational crisis plan, a violence intervention plan, and a post-violence trauma plan. • Develops a comprehensive definition of workplace violence and examines its rapid growth. • Suggests administrative ways of reducing risks, such as establishing anti-violence policies, improving asset security, and providing an adequate support system. • Introduces the topics of legal responsibilities and liabilities, and working with law enforcement.

Questions about the causes or sources of work stress have been the subject of considerable research, as well as public fascination, for several decades. Earlier interest in this issue focused on the question of whether some jobs are simply more inherently stressful than others. Other questions that soon emerged asked whether some individuals were more prone to stress than others. The Handbook of Work Stress focuses primarily on identifying the different sources of work stress across different contexts and individuals.

This highly readable work provides a fascinating history of international airline terrorism, and examines the ways in which airlines and governments are attempting to cope with the problem. St. John provides a detailed account of the evolution of air piracy, and profiles the eight types of hijackers and how they can be recognized. Current safety measures and policies are analyzed for countries throughout the world, and a coordinated seven-stage plan is proposed to combat future terrorism. Other topics addressed include the hijacked plane and its victims, responses, and government policies that often encourage terrorism.
