Terrorism: Commentary on Security Documents Volume 104: Current Trends brings readers up to date on the major trends in U.S. counter-terrorism efforts. In this volume, General Editors Doug Lovelace, Kristen Boon and Aziz Huq categorize the selected documents into three realms: strategic trends, economic trends, and intelligence trends. In the strategic realm, Lovelace provides helpful commentary on such underreported national security threats as the threat of conventional arms posed by developing countries. The main economic trend that this volume explores is the immense economic burden created by the US military campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq. The last section of this volume presents the latest information on how technology is improving the intelligence capabilities of the U.S. military. In particular, Volume 104 (Current Trends) details how the U.S. military has adjusted its counter-terror strategy in light of the Global War on Terrorism's open-ended, seemingly endless nature. Lovelace's commentary and document selection also reveal the problem the U.S. federal government faces in its commitment to insure victims of terrorism for their losses. Lastly, this volume shows how the U.S. intelligence community has now sought to improve its effectiveness by studying the non-terrorist criminal steps that extremist groups take in preparation for an attack.
