The first collection of its kind to provide a comprehensive investigation of terrorism, suicide terrorism and martyrdom in an empirical study that spans continents and cultures from Northern Ireland to Tokyo, Japan, the Middle East, the UK, America, Israel and elsewhere throughout the world.
This is a collection of empirical and theoretical studies dealing with terrorism, peace-making, peace keeping and post-traumatic treatment of those injured by violence through acts of terrorism and martyrdom.
The research is world-wide in scope and multidisciplinary in content and focus. It illustrates that the combination of religion, politics and terrorism is not a new phenomenon and it is not confined to the Muslim world. The book goes to the heart of these issues, in particular focusing on the religious aspect of these questions, which is epitomized in the woeful lack of understanding in western society regarding Islam and the Islamic world.2013 0-7734-4517-X

In this collection of essays, scholars weigh in on contemporary issues in African politics. These scholars offer solutions to important problems that impact all aspects of African life, from the environment, to poverty, political instability, and piracy.

This work pieces together an understanding of the Afghanistan War, primarily through the principle author’s knowledge and writings, secondarily through relevant books and articles by other authors. The goal is to provide a “primer” that individuals with little understanding of this region can use to educate themselves on the real issues of the War, issues that are rarely spoken about in the filtered politicized Western media. This book will be of value to young soldiers or diplomats being deployed for the first time to this region of the world.2008 0-7734-4997-3

This reprint of "Militerrorism", a chapter from Kelly's recently published Conscientious Objections (Mellen, 1994) seeks to show that, among all of the trendy empirical studies of terrorism, there are enduring questions of an ethical and theological nature that bear upon the question of how best to proceed in the fight against the use of terror. It points to the ethical contradiction of using state-sponsored violence and terror to fight violence and terror. It aims to make people more willing to take seriously an ethical framework which defends a morality of "perfect means", an ethic that requires, in the words of Martin Luther King, Jr., that "the means must be as pure as the ends."

Prólogo: El Proyecto de Traducción de Leymann
Para el campo del mobbing
en el lugar de trabajo, todos los caminos llevan de regreso a un solo científico. Heinz Leymann conceptualizó y nombró a esta forma distinta de agresión colectiva en 1984…La palabra mobbing
, definida como la formación de una pandilla de colegas y directivos contra un compañero de trabajo, está alojada ya en muchos idiomas, también en leyes, políticas, diccionarios médicos y manuales de gestión de recursos humanos. Todo esto puede restrearse de una forma u otra hasta Leymann.2004 0-7734-6571-5
This study examines the U.S. response to Palestinian terror in the late 1960s-early 1970s in an effort to offer insights into why governments respond as they do to transnational terror, an issue of particular relevance in the wake of September 11, 2001. This study examines the factors affecting government policy, and particularly the relationship among terrorists’ strategy and tactics, elite decisionmakers’ international strategic perspective, critical features of the domestic political landscape, and policymakers’ efforts to manipulate counter-terror policies to pursue non-terror related objectives. Detailed examination of the archival record surrounding such key terrorist events as Black September, Munich, Khartoum, Ma’alot, and Entebbe, analysis of critical negotiations involving Israel, Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and the U.S., and consideration of significant domestic developments involving Watergate, the Vietnam War, and Ford’s pardon of Nixon shed light on the interplay among terrorist actions, strategic interests, and political concerns during the Nixon and Ford administrations and point to more general conclusions about the impact of transnational terrorism on government policy.1988 0-88946-102-3

The tragedies of failed negotiations and tactical rescue attempts at Ruby Ridge, Waco, and the Good Guys electronic store highlight the difficulty of peacefully resolving hostage/crisis situations. The volatility of hostage-taking events, especially terrorist hostage takers, demonstrates the complicated challenges negotiators and tactical response teams face as they attempt to resolve hostage/crisis events. This text provides practical, tactical, and legal information concerning the interactive strategies of hostage negotiations. One of its major strengths is a comprehensive review of the legal perspectives related to hostage-taking incidents. The text is well-documented and draws on the experience of scholars and practitioners in an effort to provide the best information on determining the outcome of hostage-taking events. It ads to the behavioral science literature associated with the complicated process of hostage negotiations. The book is a blend of theory, research, practical, and legal discussion that makes it a valuable contribution to the literature on hostage negotiations.2007 0-7734-5287-7

This work represents an ambitious, controversial, revisionist examination of a number of important terroristic events of the past thirty years. It focuses, principally, upon the critical Israeli/Palestinian struggle that has, in many ways, defined thought and action about the terrorist phenomenon. Conventional, partisan explanations of some of these cruel, violent acts, part of what has been called ‘the scourge of our times,’ seem unsatisfactory to those who approach them, on an informerd basis, with a more open mind. Alternatives are explored here as what is suggested has been a well-organized, clandestine struggle by Israel to contain what otherwise might have proven an insupportable burden for that nation to have carried on its own.
What is essayed, in this lengthy review, is a scholarly, non-judgmental exposition of a remarkable, perhaps unique, counter-terrorism strategy. Its success resides in the very strength of the beliefs which this work is designed to challenge. The subject is breathtaking in its scope and potential, and the authors are all too conscious of how much farther their explorations may have taken them. History will judge how much of their thesis is to be accepted at face value. This is a seminal effort destined to cast light upon a dark area of strategic deception. Much is left to be said, but this foundation may serve to persuade others, especially qualified and unprejudiced, to build upon it.1991 0-88946-739-0
