Recommended Reading: January 2016, Part II

Note: this is part of a regular series, "Recommended Reading," published biweekly as a collection of longform, academic, or journalistic works well worth the time to read them.  These are drawn through my own readings related to the fields of homeland security, national security, homeland defense, law enforcement, foreign policy/international relations, security studies, and intelligence.  I receive no benefit -- financial or otherwise -- through the recommendations and/or links provided.  The format used is simple title-link, due to the volume and effort required to properly format them in more scholarly forms.  Links are not endorsements; they also don't always open in new windows:  be sure to click carefully.  (Full disclaimer.)

Publishing Note: "Terrorism and the Permanent War: Ownership, American Participation, and Future Courses of Action"

My first peer reviewed article ("Terrorism and the Permanent War: Ownership, American Participation, and Future Courses of Action") has been published in Vol. 6, Iss. 12 of Retos Internacionales, a graduate journal.

Abstract:
Despite its recent resurgence in international cultural memory, terrorism is not a new phenomenon: the nearly fourteen years since the attacks of September 11, 2001 on domestic, civilian American targets constitute only the most recent chapter of a history that spans centuries, if not millennia. If the definition of terrorism is expanded to include both its tactical predecessor -- guerilla warfare -- and its strategic predecessor -- asymmetrical warfare -- then terrorism, indeed, has quite the storied history. Perhaps more importantly, it is an ever-evolving tactic used in an array of contexts, which now appears to quixotically include traditional forms of warfare. Consequently, the United States -- as the most heavily-invested party to counter-/anti-terror efforts -- must decide how to successfully address the issue, as it becomes increasingly clear that terrorism cannot be forced to simply disappear. The question facing the United States, then, is one of ownership, participation, and future courses of action.
