The Economic Costs and Consequences of Terrorism

Edited by Harry W. Richardson, Honorary Doctorate, Universidad Autonoma del Estado de Mexico, Peter Gordon, Professor, School of Policy, Planning and Development, University of Southern California, US and James E. Moore II, Professor, University of Southern California, US

This landmark book covers a range of issues concerning the consequences of terrorist attacks. Beginning with a discussion of new policies and strategies, it then delves into specific areas of concern, modeling a range of possible scenarios and ways to mitigate or pre-empt damages.

‘This volume raises many important questions and is a valuable addition to the empirical literature on the economics of terrorism. Individuals charged with thinking about the design of appropriate counterterrorism and disaster management strategies will want to read this book. Highly recommended.’
– J.H. Turek, Choice
