In the tradition of nonpartisanship and current analysis that is the hallmark of CQ Press, CQ Researcher readers investigate important and controversial policy issues. The Second Edition of Issues in Terrorism and Homeland Security covers timely issues such as Terrorism and the Internet, Homeland Security, Interrogating the CIA, and Prosecuting Terrorists. Each article is engaging and reader-friendly, and opens with a human interest story that will spark the interest of students. In addition, each article gives substantial background and analysis of a particular issue as well as useful pedagogical features to inspire critical thinking and to help students grasp and review key material. Offer your students the balanced reporting, complete overviews, and engaging writing that CQ Researcher has consistently provided for more than 80 years. This text is an ideal supplementary textbook for upper-division undergraduate and graduate courses on Terrorism, Homeland Security, and U.S. National Security.
