Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This is the seventh chronology on terrorism written by Mickolus and his colleagues. Starting in 1968 he has chronicled the topic extensively, and certainly has established himself as the source for information on terrorism activities….[l]ibrarians familiar with the authors' previous works will know the thorough coverage and will want to continue that coverage by purchasing this set."

Booklist/Reference Books Bulletin

"This is the latest in the series of excellent works by these two collaborators. The series started in 1974 and now, unfortunately for the world and its people, fills almost a shelf with its chronicle of evil deeds….The newest volumes are arranged in chronological order, as is to be expected. They include both new items for 2002-04 and updates with more details on events as early as 1935 that were initially covered in the earlier tomes. The first two volumes (463 pages) contain the two chronologies. The third volume (another 371 pages) contains a substantial bibliography and three indexes (country and date, name, and subject) for the current chronology. Recommended. All levels."
