Car bombing, suicide bombing, abduction, smuggling, homicide, and hijacking are all profoundly criminal acts. In "Terrorism as Crime", Mark S. Hamm presents an understanding of terrorism from a criminological point of view, arguing that the most successful way to understand, detect, prosecute and deter these acts is to use conventional criminal investigation methods. Whether in Oklahoma City or London, "Terrorism as Crime" demonstrates that criminal activity is the lifeblood of terrorist groups and that there are simple common denominators at work that can remove the mystery surrounding many of these terrorist groups. Once understood the vulnerabilities of these organizations can be exposed. This important volume focuses on six case studies of crimes committed by jihad and domestic right wing groups, including biographies of more than two dozen terrorists along with descriptions of their organizations, strategies, and terrorist plots. "Terrorism as Crime" offers an original and significant framework for explaining international and domestic terrorism, as well as how future acts might be detected or exposed.
