In 1979, several world reknowned politicians, ambassadors, academicians, and journalists met at the Jerusalem Conference on Terrorism to discuss the origins, nature, and future of terrorism and to propose measures for combatting and defeating the international terror movements. This conference marked a turning point in the world's understanding of the problem of terrorism and what has to be done about it. This excellent collection of articles expressing a broad range of political opinion on terrorism makes available for the first time the contents of that conference.

Benjamin Netanyahu is professor emeritus of Judaic studies at Cornell University and currently director of The Jonathan Institute. He is author of numerous books and studies in the field of medieval and modern Jewish history.Review:
"The Soviet Union is being depicted at a conference on international terrorism as the patron, armorer and strategist for most of the extremists who have left a trail of blood across the Western world. This theme was introduced by U.S. Senator Henry M. Jackson and developed in detail by the meeting's star participants, all prominent in the research and analysis of terrorist operations."
—Chicago Sun Times
"Most of the participants would have agreed that the first political task at hand on the issue of terrorism is to cut the idea of terrorism loose from the connection it now has in many Western liberal minds with notions of national liberation and social justice; only then can terror be viewed plainly as a crime and a threat. But their second task is to establish another kind of connection, and make people see terrorism not as just a random occurrence but as a tactic in the Soviet war against the West."
—The Wall Street Journal
