This book offers a detailed and practically oriented guide to the challenges of conducting terrorist fieldwork.

The past decade has seen an explosion of research into terrorism. However, field research on terrorism has traditionally been surrounded by many myths, and has been called anything from "necessary" and "crucial" to "dangerous", "unethical" and "impossible". While there is an increasing interest among terrorism specialists in conducting such research, there is no single volume providing prospective field researchers with a guideline to such work.

Conducting Terrorism Field Research aims to fill this gap and offers a collection of articles from experienced authors representing different risk groups, disciplines, methodological approaches, regional specializations, and other context-specific aspects. Each contributor provides a road-map to their own research, describing planning and preparation phases, the formalities involved in getting into conflict zones and gaining access to sources. The end product is a 'how to' guide to field research on terrorism, which will be of much value to terrorism experts and novices alike.

This book will be of much interest to students and researchers of terrorism studies, war and conflict studies, criminology, IR and security studies.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'First-hand field research is a vital part of original scholarship on
terrorism. This excellent volume draws on a wide range of cases, and a rich
body of high-quality research experience, to provide insights which will be
of enormous value to scholars in the future.'
-- Richard English, University of St Andrews

'A uniquely useful compendium of expert guidance on one of the most daunting obstacles to productive research on terrorism: field work. This contribution fills a large gap.' -- Martha Crenshaw, Stanford University

'An essential primer for anyone contemplating field work in war or conflict zones, Conducting Terrorism Field Research distills best practices, dispenses practical guidance and provides critical preparatory advice to anyone contemplating or undertaking such research.' -- Bruce Hoffman, Georgetown University

'Violence requires justification. This is also true for terrorism. Terrorists want to explain and hope to be understood. In this ground-breaking volume, 16 researchers describe their journeys into the lion's den and the practical, methodological and ethical problems they encountered when interviewing terrorists. If further proof were needed that the field of terrorism studies has achieved a higher level of maturity, this volume, introduced and edited by Adam Dolnik, provides it.' -- Alex Schmid, International Centre for Counter-Terrorism, The Hague
