Effective counterterrorism requires a non-prejudicial understanding of terrorist motives and methods. Security professionals need to identify who terrorists might be, recognize pre-incident indicators of terrorist activity, and competently analyze intelligence information. Unfortunately, most terrorist education comes in short, sketchy briefings, and reliable sources for the foundational knowledge and tools necessary to prevent or mitigate an attack are rare and incomplete at best.
The Latest Geopolitical Factors
The second edition of Nance’s bestselling Terrorist Recognition Handbook is fully updated with the latest information on geopolitical factors affecting global terrorism and regional insurgencies. An additional section includes analyses of transformations within Al Qaeda, coverage of the modern insurgency, and newly active global and regional terrorist groups. Thoroughly revised, the section on terrorist tactics reveals entirely new trends and attack methods that have been previously unseen.
Learn from the Expert

It answers critical questions about who represents a threat, what opportunities are available for them to succeed, and what behaviors can be observed as they prepare for an attack?
Quick Information in a Crisis
Designed for rapid assimilation, each chapter can be read in any order. The no-nonsense style and numerous illustrations make it useful for quick identification of conventional weapons and weapons of mass destruction.

Whether they are acting as a one-person cell, or with a sophisticated global finance and logistics network, terrorists can be members of nearly any race, sex, religion, or political persuasion. But every terrorist operation always has certain characteristics, and the only effective way to identify and prevent terrorists is to observe their behavior and analyze it with an intelligence-based approach. For the first time, a former U.S. military anti-terrorism intelligence officer reveals thousands of Terrorist Attack Pre-incident Indicators (TAPIs) in The Terrorist Recognition Handbook, and shows:
· How terrorist operatives are classified and organized by skill level
· How intelligence, operations, planning, logistics cells operate
· The key steps every terrorist group always follow
· How to recognize the stages of a terrorist plot
· The entire range of attack tactics, techniques, and methodologies of known terrorist groups
· How and why groups use conventional, radiological, nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons at the street level
· How to conduct terrorism intelligence analysis in the field
With dozens of incident case studies and hundreds of illustrations, The Terrorist Recognition Handbook is the first and only commercially available handbook that debunks the aura of mystery surrounding terrorist activities as it uncovers the terrorists' means, methods, organization, and motivations. It will be an invaluable resource and training guide for police officers, SWAT teams, federal officials, security companies, local water boards, chemical plants, oil refineries, power generating facilities, electrical and telephone utilities, airport facilities, public transportation officials, education officials, journalists, and ordinary citizens.
