Terrorism, sadly, seems here to stay and to stay with a vengeance. It turns out that the United States was not prepared for it and now must play catch-up.

Contents: Preface; State Supported Terrorism; Nuclear Powerplants: Vulnerability to Terrorist Attacks; Nuclear Smuggling and International Terrorism: Issues and Options for U.S. Policy; Terrorism Preparedness: Catalogue of Selected Federal Assistance Programs; Terrorism and Extraterritorial Jurisdiction in Criminal Cases: Recent Developments; Federal Air Quality and Emergency Response Authorities at the World Trade Center Site; Counter Terrorism: Impacts on Research, Development and Higher Education; Combating Terrorism: Possible Lessons for U.S. Policy from Foreign Experiences; Terrorism: The New Occupational Hazard; Visa Issuance: Policy, Issues and Legislation; Index.
