Description: At present, no single source provides a comprehensive overview of the financing of terrorism, its methods and regulation. With three years of experience in the global effort to cut off terrorist funding, this volume offers a much-needed analysis of a complex, widely discussed, yet poorly understood subject. While a number of sensational and poorly documented books have been published on terrorism with sections devoted to terrorist financing, this is the first high-level scholarly, analytically sophisticated overview of terrorist financing. It brings together prominent experts and scholars with practitioners to provide a critical assessment of the international effort to date in restricting terrorist financing, to evaluate the costs and benefits of this important initiative, and to offer recommendations for more effective policies to curb the financing of terrorism.
