Encyclopedia of Terrorism

Facts On File, 2007 - 478 páginas
The ongoing conflicts in the Middle East and the bombings overseas have shown that - despite the ""War on Terror"" - terrorism is still very much a part of daily life for many individuals. Thoroughly updated and expanded by terrorism experts, ""Encyclopedia of Terrorism, Revised Edition"" provides students, researchers, journalists, and policymakers with a complete survey of what seems to be an intractable problem. More than 350 entries organized in an easily accessible, A-to-Z format offer comprehensive treatments of the events, people, organizations, and places that have played a major role in international terrorism. Each entry is placed within its appropriate historical context to help readers understand the wide-ranging motivations behind terrorist actions. Also included in this timely volume is a chronology of terrorist events that have occurred from 1945 to the present. New and updated entries include: Army of God; Osama bin Laden; Cyberterrorism; Darfur; Hamas; Saddam Hussein; Militias in the United States; The 9/11 Commission Report; Oklahoma City bombing; Al-Qaeda; USA Patriot Act; and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.
