This chapter engages in a critical analysis of the use of 'offender profiling' as developed in a criminal context and asks what relevance does such a paradigm have when applied in a terrorism context? More specifically, does offender profiling have potential to assist in developing a more comprehensive understanding of terrorism or is it largely irrelevant?

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
