Overview

The Terrorism Reader explores all the aspects of terrorism from its definition, psychological and sociological effects, legal and ethical issues to counter-terrorism. In a particularly original way, this reader illustrates the growth and variety of terrorism with a series of thirteen case-studies from four continents including: al-Qaida, Osama bin Laden, and the Taliban, ETA and Spain, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, the Shining Path in Peru, the Liberation Tigers in Sri Lanka, the IRA and UFF in Northern Ireland, and the Quaddafi Regime in Libya.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
‘A comprehensive, nuanced survey of international terrorism ... the Reader has both a better sense of the complexity of terrorism as an international phenomenon and ... the distinctiveness of the historical and political conditions’ – Athan Theoharis, Marquette University

‘One of the book’s strengths is its ability to see beyond particular conflicts to analogies across the world, including chapters in Libya, Sri Lanka, Algeria and Italy’ – The Australian Jewish News
