About

Overview

Today's newspapers are filled with reports of conflicts between nations. Some conflicts have recently erupted; many have been going on for years. But most of them have deep-rooted, historical causes that are not explained in the media. That's what makes History Behind the Headlines big news for librarians, students, teachers and other researchers, who will consult it over and over again. For important background information on long-term ethnic, religious, political, territorial and economic conflicts between nations today, there isn't a more targeted ongoing print series.

Volume 5 of History Behind the Headlines is a special volume devoted entirely to topics of terrorism.

Each biannual volume includes approximately 30 entries arranged alphabetically by either the major country involved or the subject of the conflict. The entries are complete with overview essays, photographs, maps, charts, primary document excerpts, short biographies, current status and much more. These combined features offer a unique and in-depth analysis, tracing significant international conflicts back to their earliest stages.

Reviews

"Although this work is a high quality source, it will be a somewhat difficult reference source to employ. An individual wishing to find information on a particular topic must search the entire number of volumes to see if the issue in question has merited an essay. The volume would make a nice textbook for a course in international conflict, but as a reference volume, it will be far too expensive for that purpose. Which libraries should purchase this series is not clear. The price will be a decisive factor." -- ARBA (2002)
