Extremist Groups: Information for Students provides an overview and history of 150 extremist organizations worldwide that are active today. Arranged alphabetically by group across two volumes, entries average 32,000 words, follow a standard set of rubrics, and focus on when and why the groups were established, their agendas and tactics, and government and civilian efforts to counter them.
Aryan Nations, Operation Rescue, Earth First!, Al Qaeda, and Basque Euskadi Ta Askatasuna (ETA) are amonged the groups featured. Entries include short biographies of prominent figures in the organization, primary documents, and a chronology of group events.
"On the balance, these two large volumes will provide a very good, quick reference -- yes, even more quickly than the Web -- for those seeking information of this kind. Combining the history and photographs with illustrations and key personnel will make users of this source as knowledgeable about extremist groups as there can possibly be in the general population."
