Waltham, MA, October 7, 2013

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced the publishing of Homegrown Violent Extremism by counterterrorism expert Dr. Erroll G. Southers.

Homegrown Violent Extremism, published under the Anderson Publishing imprint, challenges how Americans think about terrorism, recruitment and the homegrown threat. Southers examines post-9/11 homegrown violent extremism including what it is, the conditions that enable its existence, and approaches that can reduce the risk. The book discusses how violent extremists exploit vulnerabilities in communities and offers approaches to put security theory into practice. It is valuable information for communities, security practitioners and policymakers.

Southers is an internationally recognized counterterrorism and public safety expert. He was appointed to the California Governor's Office of Homeland Security. He was also Chief of Homeland Security and Intelligence at Los Angeles International Airport and an FBI special agent. Southers is currently Associate Director of Research Transition for the Department of Homeland Security National Center for Risk & Economic Analysis of Terrorism Events (CREATE) and an adjunct professor at the Sol Price School of Public Policy at the University of Southern California. In addition, he is the Managing Director of Counter-Terrorism and Infrastructure Protection for TAL Global Corporation.

Elsevier also recently published several international and domestic security book titles under the Butterworth-Heinemann imprint, including:
