Overview

"Global Terrorism, Revised Edition addresses the new reality of terrorism at home and abroad, combining an updated general perspective on terrorism (including a historical introduction and theoretical discussion) with recent events and publications. Updated regional coverage of terrorism places recent attacks and responses in a global perspective and discusses them in connection with the expansion of the "war on terrorism" declared by the United States. Recent attention has focused on the ability of dispersed al-Qaeda members or connected groups to carry out attacks on targets throughout the world. The U.S. government has also expressed great concern about the threats of state-sponsored terrorism and weapons of mass destruction (most notably in Iraq, Iran, and North Korea) and terrorist-guerrilla movements." With the geography of world terrorism constantly changing, this revised edition provides readers with essential information for understanding what is happening in the war against terror, why it is happening, and what it may lead to in the future. The book emphasizes terrorism as a worldwide phenomenon, with material relating to the major world trouble spots, and offers a comprehensive historical summary of the topic.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-First published as Terrorism (2001) just before 9/11, this updated edition narrows its focus to activities outside the U.S. (Henderson's Terrorist Challenge to America [2003, both Facts On File] in the same series deals more exclusively with causes and results of the 9/11 attacks.) Global begins by defining the issues and concepts and sets the historical context. Following this is a 40-page survey of attacks targeting civilians in the world's "trouble spots" and an annotated list of selective terrorist groups. This is the strongest chapter in the book. Another chapter is devoted to recent American legislation and court cases. The volume also contains a lengthy chronology, heavily weighted toward the last two years; short profiles; a chapter on "how to research terrorism"; a 90-page annotated bibliography; and a list of U.S. organizations and agencies studying or monitoring terrorist activities. Appendixes offer a smattering of statistics and small maps that lack detail. Unfortunately, the historical summaries gloss over large areas of the world that have encountered or fostered terrorism (Africa is discussed in one page; Sudan is not even mentioned; and Libya and the Philippines are covered in two sentences), and aside from the chronology, much of the information is dated. Libraries looking for recent information should rely on Harvey W. Kushner's The Encyclopedia of Terrorism (Sage, 2002) and topical books dealing with controversial issues, such as Laura K. Egendorf's Terrorism (Greenhaven, 2004), to provide students with understandable and fair analyses of this important subject.-Jack Forman, Mesa College Library, San Diego Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
