Abstract:

This book provides an informed and rational examination of this difficult subject starting with the 1970 murder of nine Israeli school children and three adults in a brutal terrorist attack that left nineteen others crippled for life. Tracing the history of school related terrorist attacks in ten countries all the way through the atrocities committed at Beslan, the authors invoke the counsel of other top experts in evaluating this timely, emotional and critical subject. By looking at these and other violent acts perpetrated by extremists around the world, we may be better able to understand the vulnerabilities of our students and campuses here in America. Of particular note is the trend for targeting school and commuter buses transporting students. Thus far, school related targets have not been the type of target favored by terrorists.
