[New publication]: If Left to their Own Devices: Police Provocation & Terrorists’ Tendency to Fail

Looking for the intersection of Critical Theory and good ol’ fashioned Conflict Analysis…look not further than Unrest Magazine, produced by an underground collective of editors and authors at George Mason University’s School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution.  The magazine produces high quality scholarship from a host of lefty conflict theorists including some personal heros of mine.

My article for this issue is called, “If Left to their Own Devices: Police Provocation & Terrorists’ Tendency to Fail” and explores the use of provocateurs by police and the idea that without FBI encouragement (read facilitation and entrapment), most acts of terrorism would collapse on their own, without interference.  It’s a further discussion of the criminalization of dissent, and a small insight into getting by in a post-9/11 world.
