"Taking Measure of Terrorism: The Calming of America"

Terrorism is designed to strike fear in a population. The topic has been prominent in the media and on the mind since 9/11. Psychological and sociological aspects of terrorism will be surveyed with particular attention to contemporary terrorism affecting the United States. Impacts of terrorism will be identified, including psychological vulnerabilites of individuals and populations. Suicide terrorism and current thinking on extremist Islamist terrorism will be covered. Public health, psychological, sociological, and philosphical / spiritual points of view suggest a measured perspective on this difficult subject is more appropriate than may be apparent.
