Global Terrorism

Front Cover
Psychology Press, 2004 - Political Science - 289 pages

Global Terrorism 2nd edition continues to provide students with the most comprehensive introduction to terrorism as a global phenomenon. It introduces students to history, politics, ideologies and strategies of both contemporary and older terrorist groups.

Written in a clear and accessible style, each chapter explains a different aspect of terrorism and illustrates this with a wide variety of detailed case studies from across the world. Although the focus is on the contemporary, the book also includes discussion of older terrorist groups.

Building on the strengths of the first edition, this edition includes new material on:

  • July 7 attacks in London
  • Bali bombings
  • domestic terrorism in Columbia
  • attacks in Iraq
  • Al Qaeda, the Tamil Tigers, the IRA
  • animal rights extremism.

The unique combination of a genuinely historical focus and truly global coverage makes this an ideal introductory textbook for anyone studying terrorism.
