Summary:
For decades, terrorist events have brought the subject of terrorism to the forefront of cultures around the globe and in more recent years, to the United States. And, for as long as violence has been a part of the human experience, the definition of terrorism has been widely debated. Terrorism in Perspective offers undergraduate and graduate students a comprehensive overview of global and domestic terrorism. Rather than focusing on a single definition of terror
ism, this volume casts a wider net, focusing on acts of terrorism and their relationship to culture, religion, history, politics, economics, and ideology.

Each chapter is introduced with a rich overview of the issues, actors and actions specific to the topic under discussion, providing students with context prior to articles culled from a wide variety of popular, academic, and governmental sources. These previously published articles were selected to deepen the reader's understanding of terrorism by focusing more intently on specific themes. Chapter topics include homegrown terrorism, international terrorism, female involvement in terrorism, the symbiotic relationship between the media and terrorism, and both conventional and non-conventional terrorist tactics.

Features and Benefits:
  • Balanced. Broad coverage of past and present terrorist activities both in the U.S. and around the world.
  • Current. Thorough coverage of the events of 9/11/01 and its aftermath, including such topics as counter-terrorism, U.S. foreign and domestic policies, and anti-terrorism legislation. Also includes the State Department report, "Patterns of Global Terrorism 2001" in the appendices.
  • Dynamic. First terrorism textbook to consistently utilize photographs to enhance chapter presentations and end-of-chapter "Explore" sections which direct students to further information on the Web.
  • Student-focused. A mini-atlas in the back of the text includes regional maps with legends locating and identifying terrorist events. The mini-atlas will help students identify the geographic regions and places referred to throughout the book.
Recommended as a general reference text and as a primary text for undergraduate students in international relations, politics, and violence and terrorism courses.
