Michael B. Kraft is a Washington-based counterterrorism consultant, writer, and editor with more than thirty-five years of experience working on terrorism issues in the State Department, Congress, and the private sector. After retiring as a senior advisor in the State Department Counterterrorism Office, he served as an adjunct counterterrorism faculty member at the National Defense University Africa Center for Strategic Studies.

Edward Marks retired as a senior foreign service officer (minister-counselor) in 1995. Since then, Ambassador Marks has engaged in consulting, lecturing, and writing, primarily on terrorism, interagency coordination, United Nations’ affairs, and complex international emergencies. He has written extensively on these and other subjects.

U.S. Government Counterterrorism: A Guide to Who Does What is the first readily available, unclassified guide to the many U.S. government agencies, bureau offices, and programs involved in all aspects of countering terrorism domestically and overseas. The authors, veterans of the U.S. government’s counterterrorism efforts, present a rare insider’s view of the counterterrorism effort, addressing such topics as government training initiatives, weapons of mass destruction, interagency coordination, research and development, and the congressional role in policy and budget issues.

Includes a Foreword by Brian Michael Jenkins, Senior Advisor RAND Corporation

Individual chapters describe the various agencies, their bureaus, and offices that develop and implement the counterterrorism policies and programs, providing a useful unclassified guide to government officials at all levels as well as students and others interested in how the U.S. counters terrorism. The book also discusses the challenges involved in coordinating the counterterrorism efforts at federal, state, and local levels and explains how key terror events influenced the development of programs, agencies, and counterterrorism legislation. The legislative underpinnings and tools of the U.S. counterterrorism efforts are covered as are the oft-debated issues of defining terrorism itself and efforts to counter violent extremism.

In addition to outlining the specific agencies and programs, the authors provide unique insights into the broader context of counterterrorism efforts and developments in the last 10-plus years since 9/11 and they raise future considerations given recent landscape-altering global events.

The authors were interviewed by National Defense Magazine in a January 23, 2012 article entitled Counterterrorism 101: Navigating the Bureaucratic Maze.

They were interviewed on April 30, 2012 by Federal News Radio.
