MetadataShow full item record
This thesis is an attempt to analyze the effectiveness of the Federal Bureau of investigation (FBI) in countering domestic terrorism in comparison to other democracies. In the first chapter, there is an attempt to define terrorism by examining the historical development and early attempts at defining terrorism. The second chapter describes the history of the FBI and its early battles with domestic terrorists, including infringements upon constitutional rights. The third chapter relates Israel's problems with domestic terrorism by outlining the professional development and tragic errors of the Shin Bet (Israel's domestic security service). Great Britain's attempts to crush the Irish Republican Army are the subject of the fourth chapter. The fifth chapter concludes by demonstrating that each country has sought to eliminate domestic terrorism but no matter what method is used, eventually, they are forced to negotiate with the terrorists.
