Reviews

"For any library serving secondary-school and ungergraduate researchers, Terrorism is worth a serious look. It packs an impressive selection of primary source material, both in terms of subject coverage and format, into a very user friendly template."-Booklist 2006

— Reference & Research Book News

Part of a ten-volume series intended to provide primary source documents on major social issues of the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries, this volume presents 156 full or excerpted documents dealing with the issue of global terrorism. The entries are organized into sections on anarchist terrorism, political terrorism, insurgent terrorism, separatist terrorism, religious terrorism, state-sponsored terrorism, global terrorist movements, special-interest terrorism, counter-terrorism, and terrorism and society. Each entry provides key factors about the author, contextual introduction, discussion of the significance of the document, and a listing of further resources. It becomes apparent as one looks over the contents that terrorism is largely, although not exclusively, defined in a manner that conforms to the views of current and past American government officials (i.e. little discussion of CIA-sponsored terrorism against Cuba or Nicaragua and few examples of terrorism by “our friends” but plenty by those perceived as enemies by the US government and its allies and client states)." --Reference & Research Book News, May 2006
