Root causes of terrorism : myths, reality, and ways forward by Tore Bjørgo( )

26 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Addressing the causes of a problem is often more effective than trying to fight its symptoms and effects. In Root Causes of Terrorism, a team of international experts analyses the possibilities and limitations of preventing and reducing terrorism by addressing the factors that give rise to it and sustain it."--Jacket
Leaving terrorism behind : individual and collective disengagement by Tore Bjørgo( )

14 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 589 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new edited volume expands our understanding of the processes by which individuals and groups disengage from terrorism. While there has been a growing awareness of the need to understand and prevent processes of radicalization into terrorism, disengagement and deradicalization from terrorism have long been neglected areas in research on terrorism. This book uses empirical data to explore how and why individuals and groups disengage from terrorism, and what can be done to facilitate it. The work also presents a series of case studies of disengagement programs, from Colombia, northern Europe, Italy, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia, comparing and assessing their various strengths and weaknesses. In light of lessons learned from these cases, this book describes and explains potential for new developments in counter-terrorism. This book will be of great interest to all students of terrorism studies, war and conflict studies, international security and politics in general, as well as professionals in the field of counter-terrorism--Publisher's description
Racist violence in Europe by Rob Witte( Book )

24 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All over Europe, asylum-seekers, immigrants and minorities are finding themselves increasingly under violent attack. Causing death, injury, destruction and fear, the perpetrators are often applauded by locals while the police stand passively by. At other times, large numbers of ordinary citizens stand up against the violence and racism, and the authorities take firm action. Who are the perpetrators? What are their motives? To what extent are right-wing or neo-Nazi organisations involved? How do the authorities and the police respond, and to what effect? What are the roles of the media, public opinion and anti-racist movements? What can be done to stop the violence? These are questions addressed by some of Europe's leading experts on racism and racist violence. Some of the answers given shatter conventional wisdom about racist violence. This volume is the first to focus specifically on the violent aspects of racism in a European context
Nation and race : the developing Euro-American racist subculture( Book )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today's rapidly growing Euro-American racist subculture is markedly different from past trans-Atlantic interactions. While nationalistic ideologies such as Nazism and fascism were traditionally imported from Europe to the United States, recent trends indicate that extreme right-wing ideas now also flow from America to Europe. The unprecedented convergence among adherents to hate movements on both sides of the Atlantic is thoroughly explored in this collection of original essays."--BOOK JACKET. "Experts in sociology, political science, and history examine a wide range of international linkages that gave rise to an increasingly cohesive transnational and Euro-American brotherhood of the radical right. Among the topics discussed are the Internet, conspiracy theories, white power rock 'n' roll, and the skinhead movement."--Jacket

Strategies for preventing terrorism by Tore Bjørgo( )

17 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This innovative new book aims to put society's fight against terrorism into a comprehensive crime prevention perspective with a clear, understandable theoretical foundation, developing a general model for the prevention of crime which is, in this book, applied to terrorism. Traditionally, both the police and other social and political agencies have tended to think of the prevention of terrorism and responses to terrorism as two separate tracks or activities. The holistic model presented in this book goes beyond this division by integrating criminal justice sanctions, harm reduction and several approaches to crime prevention into one unified model. This model, which identifies nine key preventive mechanisms, provides a powerful tool for thinking systematically about how to reduce terrorism and other crime problems. It will appeal to scholars and students in criminology, terrorism and security studies and also to police officers and other practitioners"--Page [4] of cover
Preventing crime : a holistic approach by Tore Bjørgo( )

19 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traditional "schools" of crime prevention, like the criminal justice model, social crime prevention or situational crime prevention, have proved to be too narrow and do not combine well with other approaches. However, each of these models provides important insights and contributions for reducing crime. By extracting the main preventive mechanisms of these diverse approaches, this book develops a more holistic, general model that consists of nine preventive mechanisms: building normative barriers to crime, reducing recruitment, deterrence, disruption, incapacitation, protecting vulnerable targets, reducing benefits of crime, reducing harm, and facilitating desistance. The measures to activate the preventive mechanisms may differ according to the type of crime, as may the actors in charge of implementing the relevant measures. However, Tore Bjørgo demonstrates how his model of crime prevention can be effectively applied to diverse forms of crime, from domestic burglaries to criminal youth gangs and driving under the influence to organized crime and terrorism. In doing so, this important book will be of interest to scholars and students of policing, security studies and criminology, as well as practitioners and policy-makers
The dynamics of a terrorist targeting process : Anders B. Breivik and the 22 July attacks in Norway by Cato Hemmingby( )

13 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides an in-depth analysis of probably the most horrific solo terrorist operation the world has ever seen. On 22 July 2011 Anders Behring Breivik killed 77 people when he bombed the Government District in Oslo, before he conducted a shooting attack against a political youth camp at Utøya. The main focus of the book is on the operational aspects of the events, particularly the target selection and decision-making process. Why did Breivik choose the targets he finally attacked, what influenced his decision-making and how did he do it?Using unique source material, providing details never published before, the authors accurately explain how even this ruthless terrorist acted under a number of constraints in a profoundly dynamic process. This momentous work is a must read for scholars, students and practitioners within law enforcement, intelligence, security and terrorism studies"-
