Topic: The paper will examine a particular lone wolf individual, tracing their “self” indoctrination as a “soldier” for their cause. This analysis will include an historical, ideological, operational, and outcome-based evaluation. The analysis will further include a reality-based perspective of the impact of contemporary flows of information on the acquisition of materials and tactics to commit an act of terror, as well as the potential for this menace to grow as well as succeed in their stated (and unstated) goals.
The paper must have a title page and must follow APA style. Pages must be numbered. An abstract is not necessary but may be included. It does not count towards the required pages.
A minimum of ten sources must be researched and cited in the paper. Only sources referenced throughout the paper will be counted towards the ten. The paper will be partially evaluated on the quality and appropriateness of your sources. As a general rule, academic sources, e.g., books, journals, government-sponsored studies and reports, are of better quality than newspapers and magazines. Web sources, other than government web sites, may not be used, unless it is a NJCU database article. The course texts may be cited.
The paper must be typed, double-spaced. Times Roman font style should be consistent throughout the paper (Italics and boldface are permissible). Twelve-point font size should be used. Exceptions to the font requirements may be made for tables and exhibits, or in cases in which the nature of the paper warrants such deviation.
The paper must be at least 10-15 full pages of CONTENT with normal margins. Scores for papers that do not meet the minimum length requirement will be marked down by five points for each half page or portion of a half page short, and ten points for three-quarters of a page short.
