Can Terrorism Be Stopped

Daily Stories by Dr Stephen Sloan

In 1976 I co-authored a pioneering study on terrorism, which my students helped to compile. It was published in the Daily Oklahoman in an eight-part series entitled “Can Terrorism Be Stopped” which was later syndicated internationally to leading foreign newspapers by the New York Times. I never got credit from my department since my study did not appear in a refereed journal. It was at that time that I started to ignore the conventionality of academia.
