Terrorism Since 9/11: The American Cases
edited by John Mueller
All New, Updated for 2015!
This book springs from set of papers generated in an honors seminar I conducted in the autumn quarter of 2010 at Ohio State University. After a few weeks of examining the literature on terrorism, each student was assigned to do a case study of an American post-9/11 terrorism plot following as much as possible an outline I worked out during the quarter to frame their reports. After the course was over, many of the students voluntarily revised their papers taking into account (but not necessarily agreeing with) the comments I made on their original papers when I graded them.
These papers, both those revised and those unrevised, were then edited by me, particularly to enhance comparability across the cases, to reduce repetition, and to clean up at least some of the rough edges, and they were then sent to the students for their final approval. This book presents the results, and I have added a headnote for each case, some of which take a somewhat different tack, or interpret the evidence somewhat differently, than the detailed papers. Several case studies were added later by Lauren Brady and David Bernstein so that the present set includes a couple of terrorism cases that were initially omitted in the seminar as well as a few that have taken place since it was conducted.
The results should be taken, perhaps, to be something of a work in progress: we plan to update, revise, and correct, and then re-post from time to time. Accordingly, each case study and each headnote is dated and carries its own individual pagination.
This edition of the book reflects terrorism activity through March 2014, including the Boston Marathon Bombing.
