This title provides the definitive reference resource on terrorism throughout the world from Ancient Greece and Rome to the post-September 11 world. This illustrated set includes more than 200 in-depth articles and provides students with essential background on the various types, definitions, and categories of terrorism -- domestic and international, religious and nationalist, state and non-state, left-wing and right-wing -- as well as detailed entries on terrorist movements and incidents throughout history and across the globe. Other sections detail the various methods and aims of modern terrorist groups; the technologies, resources, and expertise brought to bear by counterterrorist organizations; and the effects of the September 11 attacks on homeland security, emergency response systems, law enforcement and intelligence-gathering, civil rights, imprisonment and detention, victim relief, immigration policies, and other social, political, and economic issues. An extensive chronology of events, a short-entry appendix of terrorist groups and leaders, and hundreds of photographs, maps, and diagrams help make this an invaluable resource on a vital issue of national and world affairs.Costa Mesa, CA: Mazda, 2008.
