The Encyclopedia of Terrorism presents authoritative coverage of what is currently one of the world's most important topics. With more than 300 articles, the Encyclopedia provides detailed discussions of the who, what, where, when, and why of terrorism. Up to date and timely, the articles cover such topics as Al Qaeda, biological terrorism, extremism, Saddam Hussein, jihad, Zacarias Moussaoui, and suicide bombers. Its concise, readable format and detailed chronology, photographs, maps, and charts make this an essential reference.
"Using this resource will give students a place to get started and offer an idea from which students can gather more information. This book does not attempt to answer the 'whys' of terrorism, rather it aims to give an introduction to terrorism and show the far-reaching effects throughout our history."
