This book offers a detailed and practically oriented guide to the challenges of conducting terrorist fieldwork. The past decade has seen an explosion of research into terrorism.

However, field research on terrorism has traditionally been surrounded by many myths, and has been called anything from "necessary" and "crucial" to "dangerous", "unethical" and "impossible". While there is an increasing interest among terrorism specialists in conducting such research, there is no single volume providing prospective field researchers with a guideline to such work. Conducting Terrorism Field Research aims to fill this gap and offers a collection of articles from experienced authors representing different risk groups, disciplines, methodological approaches, regional specializations, and other context-specific aspects.

Each contributor provides a road-map to their own research, describing planning and preparation phases, the formalities involved in getting into conflict zones and gaining access to sources. The end product is a 'how to' guide to field research on terrorism, which will be of much value to terrorism experts and novices alike. This book will be of much interest to students and researchers of terrorism studies, war and conflict studies, criminology, IR and security studies. Read more Read less.

Review 'First-hand field research is a vital part of original scholarship on terrorism. This excellent volume draws on a wide range of cases, and a rich body of high-quality research experience, to provide insights which will be of enormous value to scholars in the future. This contribution fills a large gap. This is also true for terrorism. Terrorists want to explain and hope to be understood.

In this ground-breaking volume, 16 researchers describe their journeys into the lion's den and the practical, methodological and ethical problems they encountered when interviewing terrorists.

If further proof were needed that the field of terrorism studies has achieved a higher level of maturity, this volume, introduced and edited by Adam Dolnik, provides it.

He is the author of Understanding Terrorist Innovation: Technologies, Tactics, and Global Trends Routledge, and Negotiating Hostage Crises with the New Terrorists , as well as over 50 reports and articles on terrorism-related issues. No customer reviews. How does Amazon calculate star ratings?

Conducting Terrorism Field Research: A Guide is a great book as a general overview of terrorism research. In other words, this book is a great introduction to the field research in the area of terrorism.

If you filter research accounts, personal notes, and reflections, there are some great advices on interviewing, budgeting, risk assessment and cautions. However, the book seriously lacks in depth understanding of conducting field research, and strays from the original path into diverse subjects related to general research tips.

Research methodologies, emerging trends, meeting with subcultures and other important topics are ignored in this book. For example, ethnographic participant observation, combining multiple research methods often essential in terrorism research and similar topics is what we are expecting from a field research guide.

I hope the updated edition includes more topics on taking ethnographic field research notes, Multivariate analysis,multidisciplinary approaches, prejudices, subliminal and secondary results and their analysis etc. This book has great value and recommended to students of criminology, politics, international relations, transnational crime, criminal justice and sociology.

This book explores the innovations and advances in terrorist tactics and technologies to help fill the gap in the contemporary terrorism literature by developing an empirical theory of terrorist innovation. The key question concerns the global historical trends in terrorist innovation, as well as the critical factors responsible for the differences in practices among terrorist organizations. The first part of the book provides an overview of the tactics and technology used by terrorists in the last century and identifies the key trends for the future. The second part compares four differing terrorist organizations with the aim of identifying key factors in producing innovative tactics and weaponry. The volume provides a historical explanation of the trends in terrorist innovation and also has policy relevance, as the ability to identify signature characteristics of innovation-prone terrorist organizations is a critical element in predictive threat assessment. Understanding Terrorist Innovation will be of great interest to students of terrorism studies, security studies and political science in general.
