U.S. Army intelligence has issued an updated version of its handbook on terrorism in the 21st century.

“The handbook is a high level terrorism primer that includes an overview of the history of terrorism, descriptions of terrorist behaviors and motivations, a review of terrorist group organizations, and the threat posed to our forces, both in the United States and overseas.”

Two of the four supplements to the handbook, one on case studies in terrorism (pdf) and one on terrorism and weapons of mass destruction (pdf), have also been recently updated.
