In an updated version of his The Explosions of Terrorism (1987), Grosscup (California State Univ., Chico) is at odds with those experts he labels "neo-conservatives," who view terrorism as springing largely from foreign, left-wing, Islamic fundamentalist or "rogue" state sources. Broadly defining terrorism as indiscriminate violence or the threat of it, he sees it as a permanent feature of international politics, occurring in and abetted by most countries, including the United States. While recent events, such as the Oklahoma City bombing, may tend to support Grosscup's thesis, much of his material, in chapters on American foreign policy, Northern Ireland, Germany, India, Sri Lanka, and the Middle East, is presented verbatim from the 1987 edition. The limited new material cannot justify purchase except by the most comprehensive collections on terrorism.?Gregor A. Preston, formerly with Univ. of California Lib., Davis
