Book Description:

In the first decade of the 20th century, the world witnessed an unprecedented escalation of political terrorism in imperial Russia. Some 23,000 terrorist acts yielded approximately 17,000 victims. Russian radicals in the early 1900s initiated the tradition of using "human bombs" for terrorist purposes, preceding by almost a century radical Islamists' efforts to do the same.

About the Author:

Anna Geifman, PhD, is professor of history at Boston University and research associate at the University of Bar-Ilan, Israel.

Book Description Praeger Publishers. Hardcover. Condition: New. 229 pages. Dimensions: 9.4in. x 6.4in. x 1.1in.Arguing that Russia is the birthplace of modern terrorism, Death Orders: The Vanguard of Modern Terrorism in Revolutionary Russia uses the nation as a case study of psycho-historical patterns of worldwide terrorist activity during the past century. Key features of early-20th century Russian political extremism serve as models for terrorist experiences in other periods and regions as author Anna Geifman builds a typology of a universal phenomenon. The book shows how, in Russia and elsewhere, terrorists objectives have degenerated from punishment of individual adversaries and attempts to intimidate political elites to indiscriminate acts of political violence. It shifts attention from ideology to practices that had been previously hidden, ignored, or rationalized, demonstrating that what terrorists say about their motives may not be what actually drives them to brutality. By looking closely at Russian precedents for the general experience of modern political violence, the book helps illuminate many obscure aspects of terrorism today. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Seller Inventory # 9780275997526
