The goal of this book is to provide a unique and comprehensive examination of the ethics of terrorism�s origins, history, meaning and its numerous avenues of expression. There are 18 lectures that address the ethics of terrorism in both traditional and nontraditional explanations, including the psychological aspects of abandonment, weakness and degradation. Inasmuch as ethics and morals are often confused, the challenge lies in common misunderstanding and engaging in the discourse of the lectures on the ethics of terrorism. These lectures on the ethics of terrorism are meant to decode the complex ethical message of terrorism, and whatever the ethics of terrorism addresses. Presented in five parts, the first discusses ethnicity and community in India, Australia, and the African-American community. Part Two discusses culture, the language of terror in the media, the twenty-first century �Kultur Kamp,� and the cultural clash between Western-Muslim ideological dissonance and Islamist terrorism. Part Three presents applied ethics, money laundering, information systems for preventing and combating crime, and counteraction to present-day terrorism. Part Four studies political and social ethics, modern terrorism and what can be done, rethinking asymmetric conflicts, and the terror or error (Hamartia, Hybris) and terrorism in ancient Greek philosophy. Part Five concludes with an examination on the ethics of religion and terrorism, the nature and origin of evil, and the constructions and reality of women suicide bombers. An in-depth study of the major ethical dilemmas and problems that are related to terrorism is explored, with an approach that is highly relevant to interdisciplinary research and international comparative research. This unique and comprehensive text will be invaluable to law enforcement personnel, security professionals, social and political scientists, and criminal justice personnel.
