Preview – Homegrown: The Counter-Terror Dilemma


Greg Barker explores the threat and perception of homegrown terrorists in America from a variety of perspectives from of those on the frontlines of counter-terrorism policing to the American muslims who now live in fear of discrimination and abuse.

Homegrown tackles the issue of the otherwise ordinary American citizens who are being swayed toward extremism, putting the reasons why, how large a threat the phenomenon is and how effective measures to combat it are, under scrutiny. Barker explores the worlds of those on the frontlines of preventing extremist-recruitment at home by meeting the family members of convicted terrorists, victims of the attacks committed by them and experts and prosecutors who have worked homegrown terrorist cases.
