9781412980166: The SAGE Encyclopedia of Terrorism, Second Edition

Six years after publication of the first edition of the best-selling Encyclopedia of Terrorism, much has changed on the national security scene. Despite the dark promises of Osama bin Laden following the 9/11 attacks, the United States has not experienced any major domestic terror incidents. Al-Qaeda itself is believed to be a severely crippled organization. But while U.S. wars in Afghanistan and Iraq--not to mention the arrival of the Obama administration, a new balance of power within Congress, and an increasingly fragile economic picture--have significantly affected the national security picture, the threat of economic chaos and massive loss of life due to terror attacks has not abated. Indeed, in July 2008 analysts pointed out that even a relatively small terrorist organization could present a dire threat, with some experts arguing that a biological, chemical, or even nuclear attack on a major U.S. city is all but inevitable. In this highly charged, rapidly shifting environment, we are pleased to present the The SAGE Encyclopedia of Terrorism, Second Edition, a thoroughly updated and expanded edition of the original, highly regarded reference work. Nearly 100,000 words of new material will be added, along with fully updated original entries, and expanded coverage. New introductory essays will explore the impact of terrorism on economics, public health, religion, and even pop culture. Ethical issues such as the role of torture in interrogations, competing notions of security versus liberty, and the debates over FISA legislation and Guantanamo Bay will also be covered. Two dozen entries on significant recent events―such as the London bombings, Chechen attacks on Russian interests, and the rescue of Ingrid Bettancourt―and some 60 additional new entries will restore the work as an up-to-the-minute, natural first-stop for researchers.

About the Author:

C. Augustus “Gus” Martin is a Professor of Criminal Justice Administration at California State University, Dominguez Hills, where he regularly teaches a course on the subject of terrorism and extremism. He has also served as Associate Vice President for Human Resources Management, acting Associate Dean of the College of Business Administration and Public Policy, Associate Vice President for Faculty Affairs, and Chair of the Department of Public Administration and Public Policy. He began his academic career as a member of the faculty of the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs, University of Pittsburgh, where he was an Administration of Justice professor. His current research and professional interests are terrorism and extremism, homeland security, administration of justice, and juvenile justice.

Dr. Martin is author of several books on the subjects of terrorism and homeland security, including Understanding Homeland Security (SAGE Publications, 2017); Essentials of Terrorism: Concepts and Controversies (SAGE Publications, 2017);The SAGE Encyclopedia of Terrorism, Second Edition (SAGE Publications, 2011); Terrorism and Homeland Security (SAGE Publications, 2011); and The New Era of Terrorism: Selected Readings (SAGE Publications, 2004). He is also author of Juvenile Justice: Process and Systems (SAGE Publications, 2005).

Prior to joining academia, Dr. Martin served as Managing Attorney for the Fair Housing Partnership of Greater Pittsburgh, where he was also director of a program created under a federal court-mandated consent decree to desegregate public and assisted housing. He was also Special Counsel to the Attorney General of the U.S. Virgin Islands on the island of St. Thomas. As Special Counsel he occupied a personal and confidential position in the central office of the Department of Justice; sat as hearing officer for disciplinary hearings and departmental grievances; served as chair of the drug policy committee; served as liaison to the intergovernmental Law Enforcement Coordinating Committee as well as to the Narcotics Strike Force; and provided daily legal and policy advice to the Attorney General. Prior to serving as Special Counsel, he was a “floor” Legislative Assistant to Congressman Charles B. Rangel of New York. As Legislative Assistant, he researched, evaluated, and drafted legislation in areas of foreign policy, foreign aid, human rights, housing, education, social services, and poverty. He also drafted House floor statements, Congressional Record inserts, press releases, and news articles, and composed speeches, briefing materials, and legislative correspondence.

 

From Booklist:

The SAGE Encyclopedia of Terrorism’s second edition comes eight years after the first, which was in production as the 9/11 attacks occurred. In the intervening years, there have been a number of encyclopedias of terrorism, including Encyclopedia of World Terrorism: 1996–2002 (2003); The Greenhaven Encyclopedia of Terrorism (2007); and Encyclopedia of Terrorism (2007). More than 60 new entries and 100,000 words of new material expand the scope of the first edition by introducing new theoretical entries on topics such as economics and terrorism, international relations and terrorism, and even religious and spiritual perspectives and terrorism. In addition, the volume has updated entries on the Afghanistan and Iraq conflicts and the connections to terrorism. Following the organization and format of the first edition, the 500-plus entries are listed alphabetically, with an extended signed essay, see also references, and a bibliography of further readings. The longest article is reserved for Iraq War, which is seven pages long. Although other essays are not as long, they do include interesting facets of terrorism, such as Taliban code of conduct and Terrorism in popular culture. The volume is up-to-date, including the killing of Osama bin Laden, in May 2011. As worldwide and domestic terrorism continue to evolve, and America’s stature in the world continues to be questioned and challenged, there will be no end to revisions to this and other volumes on terrorism. Recommended for large collections and research libraries. --Jerry Carbone
