A definitive guide to terrorism as we remember the September 11, 2001, tragedy.

As recent events such as the Oklahoma City bombing, the attacks of September 11, 2001, on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, and the ongoing conflict in the Middle East have shown, terrorism is a global scourge. An ever-present reality, it can have devastating effects on governments, societies, businesses, and individuals. Encyclopedia of Terrorism takes an authoritative, even-handed approach to the facts surrounding the most serious and influential cases of modern terrorism.

Written by two well-known experts on the subject, Encyclopedia of Terrorism provides students, researchers, journalists, and policymakers with a complete survey of this rapidly growing problem. More than 300 entries, organized into an easily accessible A-to-Z format, offer thorough treatments of the events, people, organizations, and places that have figured prominently in international terrorism. Each entry is placed within its appropriate historical context to help readers understand the wide-ranging motivations behind terrorist actions. Also included in this comprehensive volume is a chronology of terrorist events and day-by-day coverage of the first months' response from around the world to September 11, 2001.

Entries include: Aerial hijacking Usama bin Laden Carlos the Jackal Cyber-terrorism Montana Freemen Nuclear terrorism Oklahoma City bombing Sarin gas attacks Unabomber USS Cole .
