On September 11, 2001, the world was put on notice: terrorism can strike anytime...anywhere...anyone. You are told to go about your daily life - but to be vigilant of your surroundings. You are told that trying to do a cursory profile on potential terrorists is futile because their commonality goes deeper than the surface. With this in mind, what do you look for in a potential situation, how do you prepare, how do you protect?

Written by experts who have years of experience in the field, The Counterterrorism Handbook: Tactics, Procedures, and Techniques, Third Edition is an invaluable resource for those who recognize that preparation is the best defense in the War on Terror. Revised and expanded to reflect information obtained since the September 11th attacks, this latest edition provides an understanding of the strategies, tactics, and techniques required to counter terrorism as it exists today. It illustrates essential topics such as the elements common to all terrorism, bomb threats, risk assessment, hostage situations, and weapons of mass destruction.
