Bruce Hoffman's Inside Terrorism has
remained the seminal work for
understanding the historical evolution of
terrorism and the terrorist mind-set. In
this revised third edition of his classic
text, Hoffman analyzes the latest
developments in global terrorism, offering
insight into new adversaries, motivations,
strategies, and tactics. He focuses on the
rise of ISIS and the resilience of
al-Qaeda; terrorist exploitation of the
Internet and embrace of social media;
radicalization of foreign fighters; and
potential future trends, including the
repercussions of a post-caliphate ISIS.

Hoffman examines the demographics of
contemporary terrorist leaders and
recruits; the continued use of suicide
bombers; and the likelihood of a
chemical, biological, radiological, or
nuclear terrorist strike. He also considers
the resurgence of violent antigovernment
militants, including white supremacists
and opponents of abortion. He argues
that the war on terrorism did not end
with Osama bin Laden's death and that
ongoing instability and strife in Syria,
Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and Yemen,
among other places, will both sustain
terrorist movements and have broad
implications for domestic and
international security around the globe.
