About this book


This book presents the voices of police and community members who have been involved in engagement and partnership projects designed for countering violent extremism.  Though the threat of the so-called Islamic State garners a great deal of current attention, the book explores ideological violence prevention efforts in a number of contexts, to include that of paramilitary organizations as well as Qa'ida inspired actors.
