This textbook by Satya P. Das presents a systematic study of terrorism from the perspective of economic analysis.  Choosing the kind and level of measures to counter terrorism  is, to a large extent, an economic decision, as counter-terrorism (CT) measures and their side effects are costly.  It contains theoretical models that illustrate the economic mechanisms behind CT measures.  A vast array of empirical studies and regularities are also presented.  It is aimed at students at the intermediate undergraduate and graduate levels.  The textbook is intended for use in courses in economics, political science, criminal justice and emergency management.  Additionally, professionals working with national security and non-governmental organizations as well as general public would find it informative and useful.
