Editorial Reviews

Leonard Weinberg
In this excellent account of American terrorism, Chris Hewitt analyzes waves of terrorist violence from the desegragation struggles of the 1950s through to the anti-government movements of the 1990s. This volume is the most thorough and carefully done work on the subject of American terrorism as readers are likely to find.
