In this chapter, we provide an informed introduction to the wide array of academic endeavors aimed at detailing and accounting for spatial and temporal patterns in the incidence of terrorist and insurgent violence. To do so, we draw upon literature from geopolitics, international relations, criminology, and terrorism studies. Our review draws upon classic theories of insurgency and modern analyses of crime and terrorism.
