The United Kingdom has long been an island under siege from terrorists who believe they can advance their aims through acts of violence. Protecting the public from the excesses of extremism remains the primary responsibility of government. For over a century Special Branch, MI5 and MI6 have prevented terrorist atrocities and have pursued those who wish to destroy the United Kingdom’s free and democratic way of life. Yet, despite developing one of the world’s most sophisticated security architectures, successful terrorist attacks have occurred with alarming regularity. For the very first time, this new volume explores the evolution of counter-terrorism practice in the United Kingdom, brought to life with dramatic case studies and personal insider accounts provided by leading policy makers, prosecutors and counter-terrorism practitioners who openly reveal the challenges and operational reality of countering contemporary terrorist threats. From the troubles in Northern Ireland to the al Qa’ida inspired genre of international terrorism, this volume plots the trajectory of counter-terrorism policy and practice exploring the events that have served to change the course of civil protection. This unique title is enriched by leading academic perspectives providing analysis of counter-terrorism responses and identifies lessons to be learned from the past, the present, as well as exploring the terrorist threats of the future to be tackled by the next generation of counter-terrorism practitioners. This accessible and authoritative volume is required reading for all in authority and academia who are concerned with national security, counter-terrorism and the law, as well as those with a vested interest in the preservation of human rights, the protection of civil liberties and democracy itself.

This volume presents world-leading ideas and research that explores some of the most prominent topics relevant to detecting terrorism. The book is divided into six key themes: conceptualising terrorism, deception and decision making, social and cultural factors in terrorism, modelling hostile intent, strategies for counter-terrorism, and future directions. Twenty two chapters cover the spectrum of detecting terrorist activities, hostile intent, crowded public spaces and suspicious behaviour. The work draws from high impact research findings and presents case-studies to help communicate concepts. Specific areas of interest include methodological issues in counter-terrorism, counter terrorism policy and its impact on end users, novel research methods and innovative technologies in counter-terrorism. A variety of disciplines are represented by this work, including: ergonomics/human factors, psychology, criminology, cognitive science, sociology, political theory, art/design, engineering and computer science. This book not only expands the knowledge base of the subject area and is therefore of prime relevance to researchers investigating counter-terrorism, but provides a valuable resource to security stakeholders at policy and practitioner levels.

The Long Decade

The terrorist attacks of 9/11 precipitated significant legal changes over the ensuing ten years, a "long decade" that saw both domestic and international legal systems evolve in reaction to the seemingly permanent threat of international terrorism. At the same time, globalization produced worldwide insecurity that weakened the nation-state's ability to monopolize violence and assure safety for its people. The Long Decade: How 9/11 Changed the Law contains contributions by international legal scholars who critically reflect on how the terrorist attacks of 9/11 precipitated these legal changes. This book examines how the uncertainties of the "long decade" made fear a political and legal force, challenged national constitutional orders, altered fundamental assumptions about the rule of law, and ultimately raised questions about how democracy and human rights can cope with competing security pressures, while considering the complex process of crafting anti-terrorism measures.

Der junge Däne Morten Storm ist Kleinkrimineller, Mitglied einer Motorrad-Gang und rutscht immer weiter in die Illegalität ab, bis er schließlich neuen Halt in den Schriften des Propheten Mohammed findet. Nach einem Gefängnisaufenthalt konvertiert er zum Islam und identifiziert sich zunehmend mit den radikalen Forderungen und Zielen extremistischer Islamisten. Ein längerer Aufenthalt im Jemen bringt ihn schließlich mit dem Hassprediger Anwar al-Awlaki zusammen. Doch noch während Storm mit diesem in direktem Kontakt steht, zweifelt er zunehmend an seinen Überzeugungen und arbeitet bald gleichzeitig für nicht weniger als drei westliche Geheimorganisationen. Von nun an führt Storm ein fast schizophrenes Leben: Er konzipiert und plant Anschläge mit führenden Köpfen der al-Qaida und lässt sich kurz darauf in luxuriöse Unterkünfte einfliegen, um seine Informationen mit westlichen Agenten zu teilen und die Nächte durchzufeiern. Seine Mission bleibt dabei jedoch ernst: einen der meistgesuchten Verbrecher Amerikas aufzuspüren und zu vernichten. Agent Storm ist ein leidenschaftliches und faszinierendes Buch voller Geschichten über codierte Nachrichten, verdeckte Treffen und die zweifelhaften Motive eines Doppelagenten – und gibt einen einzigartigen Einblick in das mächtigste und am meisten gefürchtete Terror-Netzwerk der Welt.
