Global business is affected by global terrorism and the two are intricately linked on many levels. This book is an eclectic and enlightening compendium of research that explores the interrelationships between the two. A companion to and expansion on the authors’ previous books in the area, Global Business and the Terrorist Threat takes a closer look at practical business management, as influenced by terrorist infrastructure, networks and actions.

Many overlapping areas of influence between business and terrorism are explored in depth in the book. Among other topics, the authors discuss terrorism and news flows and their effect on stock markets, as well as the effects of transitional terrorism on bilateral trade. The importance of business continuity in the face of ongoing threats is detailed, as are efforts to avoid inadvertent interactions with terrorist groups. Border issues, challenges of benefit–cost analysis for terrorism security regulations, the impact of 9/11 on the travel industry and the assessment and management of global interdependent risks close out the book.

This book will be a choice addition to the bookshelves of researchers and practitioners in international business, public policy, and terrorism and security.
‘. . . a well-organized compendium, and although there is much technical data to support the varied theories, it is a comfortable read. . . This book represents a diverse and significant contribution to our ability, as a global nation and economy, to be resilient and recover quickly and efficiently when the time comes.’
– Kathy Anne Wood, Journal of Homeland Security and Emergency Management

‘Global Business and the Terrorist Threat offers college-level business and security libraries a top pick charting overlapping areas of influence between business and terrorism from news effects on stock markets to the impact of terrorism on bilateral trade. . . Any advanced college-level business or social issues collection needs this unique analysis.’
– The Midwest Book Review
