Intelligence and Terrorism (DRAFT)
Dahl, Erik J.
MetadataShow full item record
Introduction: Beginning well before the attacks of 9/11, scholars and policy experts have studied the challenges that terrorism presents for intelligence agencies and officials. This essay reviews the literature on intelligence and terrorism, discusses the primary arguments and issues covered in that literature, and develops a typology of three schools of thought into which much of this work can be organized. It argues that even though the scholarly and policy literature on intelligence and terrorism has grown significantly since the attacks of September 11, 2001, there are still a number of areas that are understudied and deserve further research.
