Abstract:
Global Terrorism is best summarised as: a self contained textbook on the subject of terrorism, versatile in its suitability for both distance and classroom learning, either according to a fixed academic schedule, or one which is self-paced. Moreover, it notably renders the subject of terrorism in both span and depth to a degree rarely, if at all, found in other contemporary works on the topic. Global Terrorism also includes some hitherto unassembled research findings, and creative invention (definitions and formula). Furthermore, serious dedication has been applied to presenting Global Terrorism in an academic format, which is demonstrated by virtue of: a) Descriptive and explanatory instructions concerning the Course Format. b) Instructions concerning the Method of Study proposed for distance learning. c) A full List of Contents detailing the entire syllabus. d) A lengthy and protracted Introduction for adequate preparatory purposes. e) 12 distinct Lessons with titles and sub titles indicating the content syllabus. f) Clear and pre-stated Scope and Objectives for each of the 12 lessons. g) Heavily illustrated throughout (475 illustrations). h) Richly presented text (frequent bulleting and numbering, and 50 tables/charts). i) Four major case studies. j) 12 historically notable Terrorist attack briefs (concise facts of the cases). k) 12 vocabulary tables (Keywords to Note). 1) Each of the 12 Lessons concluding in an End-of-Lesson Quiz (test) of 20 questions, to gauge assimilation. m) 19 Annexes: wide-ranging scientific, political, historical and other reference information and photographs. n) A Final Examination and award ofa certificate of completion for reaching a pass standard (75%). 0) The author (candidate student) standing as mentor for all enrolled students (gratis and in own time). Finally, Global Terrorism has fortunately attracted enrolments from several hundred students, both independently and through institutions such as the US Government and Universities (at Graduate and undergraduate level). Several hundreds of students have enrolled from over 20 countries, and include police, military, security and intelligence personnel, notably a number being from the UK Ministry of Defence, US State Department and Pentagon, up to and including the General Officer level. Author (candidate-student) and Global Terrorism were briefly mentioned by the United Nations Secretary-General in his report to the UN General Assembly on Measures to Eliminate International Terrorism (Report number A/55/179).
