Combs (political science, Univ. of North Carolina, Charlotte; Terrorism in the Twenty-First Century) and Slann (Introduction to Politics: Governments and Nations in the Twenty-First Century) offer a highly accessible, information-rich guide to the figures, events, and consequences of international terrorism, both historical and contemporary. Organized alphabetically by topic name, the 350-plus entries run from a single paragraph to several pages long. New and updated entries include "Army of God," "biological agents," and "Egyptian Islamic Jihad." An appendix contains charts detailing terrorist-related patterns, while a two-month, day-by-day time line documents international responses to 9/11 and critical global events leading to the invasion of Afghanistan. Fully indexed and featuring a six-page bibliography and black-and-white photographs, this edition is highly recommended for both specialized political science collections and public libraries.
