Counterterrorism: From the Cold War to the War on Terror
Projet d’ouvrage : « Counterterrorism: From the Cold War to the War on Terror »
Date limite de réponse : 22 mars 2011
We are looking for contributors (subject experts, professors, graduate students) to author the remaining entries (updated since the previous announcement) for the 2-volume, illustrated, Counterterrorism: From the Cold War to the War on Terror, Volumes I and II to be published by ABC-CLIO in 2011. Comprehensive in scope and written by top scholars in the field, Counterterrorism: From the Cold War to the War on Terror will address counterterrorism from the days of the Cold War to the current global campaign.
Volume I consists of six chapters (sections). Section 1 is devoted largely to definitional issues and serves as a foundation for further discussion in subsequent sections on the 21st century terrorist threat. Section 2 addresses the evolution and effectiveness of select nation-state counterterrorism policy. Sections 3 and 4 address key issues which impact counterterrorism strategy and the post-9/11 global counterterrorism campaign respectively. Regional counterterrorism efforts and an agenda for future research are discussed in sections 5 and 6. Volume 2 provides a section containing articles on some of the world’s elite counterterrorism forces and a chronology of major global counterterrorism operations. Volume 2 also includes a compilation of national and international treaties, laws, conventions, agreements, and protocols which have been implemented in an attempt to counter this ongoing threat to public safety and international security. Volume 2 concludes with a glossary containing organizational and individual profiles and a comprehensive bibliography
Articles will run between 3 and 10 manuscript pages (500-2000 words) in length, depending on the subject. A small honorarium will be paid and/or hard copies of the full encyclopedia set (depending on word count) will be offered. Additionally, each contributor will receive access to the e-book. Contributors may write more than one entry but no more than three. Full authorial credit including name and affiliation will be cited on the contributor’s page. The deadline for submission is March 22, 2011. This is a firm deadline. Given the scope and present relevance of this project it is our desire to attract as many knowledgeable scholars as possible.
