Terrorism is a form of violence with the main intent of frightening people from pursuing their everyday lives. Despite calls to ignore a fear of terrorism lest “the terrorists win,” many Westerners are justifiably scared about what seems like the increased presence of terrorism in their world. This text examines viewpoints about the roots of terrorism and its role in different areas around the globe. Experts, journalists, and politicians all weigh in on this important topic in order to help students reach their own conclusions about the role of terrorism in our world today.
