In bad company : America's terrorist underground by Mark S Hamm( Book )

10 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 1,052 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The dramatic sieges at Randy Weaver's cabin in Ruby Ridge, Idaho, and the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas, combined with the FBI's reluctance to admit wrongdoing in those tragic confrontations, fueled a virulent hatred of the federal government that unified previously isolated voices within the extreme radical right movement. As a result, the scores of clandestine paramilitary cells that flourished in the aftermath of Ruby Ridge and Waco formed a loosely knit underground network with a shared goal to violently overthrow the U.S. government."
American skinheads : the criminology and control of hate crime by Mark S Hamm( Book )

15 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 1,016 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

American Skinheads is the first criminological analysis of organized hate crime violence. Mark Hamm presents historical specificity for a modern theory of hate crime, then rigorously tests the theory with interview data derived from skinheads who have committed an array of violent acts against persons because of their race, religion, or sexual preference--people who are members of the classic outgroups of American society.||Part One traces the roots of the Skinhead Nation through the Beats, Mods, Hippies, and Punks in London, and then examines the rise of the Neo-Nazi Skinheads in the United S
Apocalypse in Oklahoma : Waco and Ruby Ridge revenged by Mark S Hamm( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 919 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a work that is sure to stir controversy, Hamm convincingly argues that the force used by the FBI during the sieges at the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas, and at Randy Weaver's cabin in Ruby Ridge, Idaho, followed by an unwillingness to admit to errors in judgment, fueled the radical right's suspicion and hatred of the federal government and provided the motive for the explosion in Oklahoma City. According to the author, the incidents at Ruby Ridge and Waco became rallying symbols of excessive government intervention for right-wing activists with ideologies of varying extremes

Terrorism as crime : from Oklahoma City to Al-Qaeda and beyond by Mark S Hamm( Book )

16 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 in 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

Terrorist recruitment in American correctional institutions : an exploratory study of non-traditional faith groups final report by Mark S Hamm( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Today, there are thousands of followers of non-Judeo-Christian faith groups in American correctional institutions. Research suggests that many of these prisoners began their incarceration with little or no religious calling, but converted during their imprisonment. According to the FBI, some of these prisoners may be vulnerable to terrorist recruitment. The purpose of this research is three-fold: (1) to collect baseline information on non-traditional religions in United States correctional institutions; (2) to identify the personal and social motivations for prisoners' conversions to these faith groups; and (3) to assess the prisoners' potential for terrorist recruitment. The study creates a starting point for more in-depth research on the relationship between prisoners' conversion to non-traditional religions and extremist violence
