Homegrown Violent Extremism challenges how Americans think about terrorism, recruitment, and the homegrown threat. Security and public policy expert Erroll Southers examines post-9/11 homegrown violent extremism-what it is, the conditions enabling its existence, and approaches that can reduce the risk. The book contains essential information for communities, security practitioners, and policymakers on how violent extremists exploit vulnerabilities in their communities and offers approaches to put security theory into practice.

- Defines homegrown violent extremism (HVE) and its origins
- Enumerates the essential elements of a community-based approach to reducing HVE
- Explores leveraging related disciplines toward a profession of counterterrorism
