Overview

Terrorism is a worldwide problem and one of today's most pressing concerns. This compelling series uses the stories of some of the world's most devastating terrorist attacks as the jumping off point for examining different types of terrorist groups and their supporters, the histories of various terrorist movements, and what is being done to fight terrorism. These authoritative volumes examine current hot spots of conflict, tough issues that have yet to be resolved, and how terrorism- and the threat of terrorism- is shaping today's political landscape.
