Overview

An intriguing introduction to a notorious and disturbing international phenomenon, The Terrorism Reader draws together material from a variety of experts, clearly explaining their opinions on terrorism, to allow understanding, conjecture and debate.

David J. Whittaker explores all aspects of terrorism from its definition, psychological and sociological effects, legal and ethical issues to counter-terrorism. This Reader illustrates the growth and variety of terrorism in an original way with a series of case-studies from four continents including:

  • ETA and Spain

  • the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia

  • the Liberation Tigers in Sri Lanka

  • the IRA and UFF in Northern Ireland

  • the Shining Path in Peru.

This new edition also includes a case study on events in London in July 2005, fully updated chapters on the conflict in the Lebanon in 2006, and two new chapters on terrorism and ethics, and terrorism and the law.
