Using the insights provided by criminology, sociology, psychology, and other disciplines, Terrorism Inside America’s Borders delivers a multi-faceted examination of the issues associated with domestic terrorism. Some of the issues explored include the similarities and differences between terrorism and other criminal activities, the roles that social institutions and social processes play in the creation and prevention of terrorism, the stages involved in the unfolding of a terrorism disaster, and the impacts terrorism has on people’s lives and property. The history and trends of terrorism, as well as possible emerging solutions, are also explored.

About the Contributors
When one hears the word terrorism, many do not think state-side events. Within the textbook, Terrorism Inside America’s Borders, several hot topics are highlighted, and these events show how the lives of Americans and their view of terrorism have changed. This is a timely compilation of material to further explain the far-reaching grasp terrorism has on the United States.
