"Although not intended as an exhaustive resource on terrorism, the work is certainly thorough. The text is easy to read and largely jargon-free; acronyms are explained or defined within the text so that readers do not have to go to a glossary. Ideal for high school students working on their social studies projects and for first-year collect and university history students as a quick reference; recommended for high school and community college libraries as well as for all public libraries."
