Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Denise Daley
This book provides several detailed definitions of terrorism and then describes different types of domestic terrorism. Left-wing terrorism, for example, generally involves terrorists who perform criminal acts in an attempt to bring about change in national policies. Right-wing terrorists, on the other hand, tend to be vigilantes who support extremist causes such as belief in white supremacy. Individuals who commit hate crimes can also be considered performing acts of terrorism. Single-issue terrorism involves illegal acts directed towards a single issue such as abortion or animal liberation. There is a chapter about each of these types of domestic terrorism, and notorious criminals such as Timothy McVeigh and Lee Harvey Oswald are mentioned. The book concludes with chapters about the personal motivation for terrorists and the government's attempts to confront and counteract domestic terrorism. This well-written and informative text thoroughly investigates and reports on all angles of domestic terrorism. It is part of "The Roots of Terrorism" series. Reviewer: Denise Daley
