Rodgers and Kullman present a tremendous amount of historical and contemporary research on domestic extremism in responses presented in the text. They provide the student with a complete but concise examination of domestic terrorism with an eye toward the future, through the presentation of concrete options and suggestions for change in how domestic terrorism issues are dealt with.
