This book analyzes the central organizational and global dimensions of the policing of terrorism from a criminological viewpoint. For reasons that are too obvious to mention, terrorism has in recent years moved to the center of public attention and has become an important subject matter across a wide range of social institutions, including politics, law, the military and police and criminal justice. As a result of the significance of terrorism in contemporary society, various aspects of terrorism and counterterrorism have become central topics of scholarly research. However, there are still aspects in the field of terrorism studies that have as yet not received due attention. Among them, the policing of terrorism presents an as-yet relatively unexplored and often not properly understood topic of research. To fill this gap in the literature on terrorism, this book develops an analysis of the most important characteristics and dimensions of the policing of terrorism in a variety of national and international settings.
