In this episode, we examine Dr Hewitt's take on emerging terrorist trends in Western Europe, placing current trends in their historical perspective. Dr Hewitt's research focuses primarily on the so-called "Anglo-Sphere" – UK, Canada, United States – and he looks at the social and institutional context in which politically significant violent action occurs.
