Science and Technology of Terrorism and Counterterrorism 2nd edition by Tushar K. Ghosh, Mark A. Prelas, Dabir S. Viswanath and Sudarshan K. Loyalki pdf free download. Since the first edition of this book was published in 2002, many changes have taken place with respect to the issues concerning homeland security. Scientists, engineers, political scientists, politicians, and any other professional who have anything to do with this subject should ask themselves the following questions:
Is the fear of terrorism greater today than it was in 2002?
Is the situation better or worse today than it was in 2002?
When we look at things impassionedly, the answers to both these questions appear to be that we are more fearful and the situation is worsening.

Why is this so when we live in a world that has better communications, better science and technology, and more fi nancial power than was the case in 2002? After the events of 9/11 (September 11, 2001), we have witnessed bombs being detonated in Madrid (Madrid train bombing in March 2004) that killed 191 and wounded over 600; the bus hijacking in Ulghur, Krygyzstan (March 2003) that resulted in 20 deaths; suicide attacks in 2004 at the Port of Ashdod, Israel, that resulted in 10 deaths; the London subway attacks (July 7, 2005) that killed 52 and injured nearly 800; four attempted bomb attacks on July 21 again in London that were disrupted; failed attempts on August 9, 2006, to detonate liquid explosives aboard fl ights from London to the United States; the ongoing suicide bombings in Iraq; and many more incidents that attest to the increase in terroristic acts across the world.

Terroristic activities are on the rise on the global scene, and it is generally believed that such activities can be contained or eliminated by controlling the proliferation of nuclear, biological, and chemical (NBC) weapons; by building a strong defense system; by having in place different types of treaties; and by punishing countries that fail to follow such agreements. One may ask why these procedures, which are in place at the present time, failed to stop activities such as the Tokyo subway gassing, the Oklahoma City bombing, the World Trade Center bombing and attack, the bombing at the Atlanta Olympic games, and many more similar incidents.

Science and Technology of Terrorism and Counterterrorism 2nd edition by Tushar K. Ghosh, Mark A. Prelas, Dabir S. Viswanath and Sudarshan K. Loyalki pdf free download. This book is a direct outcome of several recent group discussions by the editors. These discussions were motivated by the fact that some of us were involved in research in the area of sensors, and that one of us, Mark A. Prelas, spent a year at the U.S. State Department as a Foster fellow. Another motivating factor was that the Nuclear Engineering Program organized a series of seminars on the nonproliferation of nuclear materials and weapons in 1998. This series included presentations by Dr. Sudarshan Loyalka, Dr. Mark Prelas, Dr. Dale Klein (formerly Assistant Secretary of Defense for NBC Defense and the former chairman of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission), LTC Charles Kelsey, and Dr. Herb Tillema.
