Abstract

This entry on Terrorism examines the definition and problems defining the phenomenon, types and typologies developed and used to understand terrorism, its history and different approaches to periodization, and finally its study. Specifically, it looks at the history and development of Terrorism Studies in the 1960s and 1970s as an interdisciplinary expert field, and its growth post-9/11 and in the context of the war on terror. This is followed by a summary of criticisms of Terrorism Studies, and short history and overview of Critical Terrorism Studies. Finally, it looks at the limited but important contribution to the study of terrorism from Sociology and Social Theory.
