The student-oriented writing style is complemented by rich pedagogy, and there is an adequate amount of research and theoretical discussion to make this an ideal text for both the undergraduate and graduate level courses.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Writing for undergraduate criminal justice majors, White (Grand Valley State U.) offers a synthetic exploration of terrorism that conforms to the definition of the term expounded by most sections of the U.S. Government. Calling terrorism "a violent form of civil disobedience," he looks at conceptual models of terrorism, discusses its history since the French revolution, and surveys some modern terrorist organizations operating domestically and abroad. International groups surveyed include the Palestinian Liberation Organization, the Red Army Faction, and right-wing separatists in the U.S. Not surprisingly, the organizations profiled are all groups to which the U.S. government is ideologically opposed and there is little recognition of other possibilities of terrorism such as the work of some Cuban emigres against the Castro regime or other groups attempting to undermine leftist regimes and opponents of the United States.
