This newly revised and updated, paperback version of the Historical Dictionary of Terrorism contains a wealth of information regarding major terrorists groups, significant terrorist events and the weapons behind the terror. The authors provide a foundation for the understanding of what terrorism is, who practices it, and who is victimized by terrorist missions. It has been significantly abridged to suit a younger audience and provides numerous Internet sites for furthering research. Entries are more concise and easy to read and the bibliography has been streamlined to include easily accessible resources.
