This volume's important analyses are too numerous to list, with noteworthy contributions including a foreward by Stephen Sloan, a veteran academic terrorism expert, on the technological and organizational evolution of terrorism.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrorism as Global Insurgency December 9, 2005
Format:Paperback
Robert J. Bunker has assembled a stellar cast of terrorism scholars including both scholars and practitioners. Among the established scholars are Graham Turbiville, Stephen Sloan, Max Manwaring, John Arquilla, and David Ronfeldt, along with Bunker, himself. Younger scholars include Sean Anderson and Kimbra Fishel while the practitioners are epitomized by Matt Begert and Lisa Campbell. All of the authors - those not named here as well as those listed - make major contributions to this pioneering work.

What Bunker and company have done is to take cutting edge research on networks in warfare, a sound background in terrorism, and have drawn the conclusion that modern terrorism constitutes global insurgency. Although this view is becoming commonplace, this group of authors was the first to make the connection.

Unfortunately, when this book first came out in hardback, Routledge had priced it so high that it was only really available to libraries and other institutions. With this new paperback version - at a reasonable price - it is now available for any serious student of terrorism. For those, it is must reading!
