This book was published after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. Sadly, however, the topic is as relevant today as ever.
Written by experts in the field and intended for students, researchers, journalists, and policy makers, this resource provides a complete survey of terrorism, arranged in an A-Z format, from Abu Abas to Zionism. (While it wasn’t the authors’ intention this would also be a great resource for writers of both fiction and nonfiction.) Most entries are short, but some cover several pages.
Included in this volume:
A detailed index
An appendix with charts and graphs
A 33-page chronology called Major Acts of Terrorism 1946-200
US and International Reaction to September 11, 2001, Day by Day (brief summaries of news-worthy actions, arranged chronologically though November 26)
