9781408282571: Terrorism (Seminar Studies)

The history of terrorism stretches back nearly two thousand years and terrorism, both in the forms of terrorist groups and terror regimes, is an inherent part of the modern world: from Anarchist groups to al-Qaida; from Hitler’s Germany and SS to al-Bashir’s Sudan and Janjaweed militias. It is a subject of high current interest that is rarely out of the news (not least as the legacy of ‘9/11’) and it is also of enduring interest. 

As a new volume in the Seminar Studies series, Terrorism has been brought up-to-date and now looks at both contemporary terrorism and its historical antecedents, providing a much needed introduction to the subject.

From the Back Cover:

The word 'terrorism' commonly evokes images of the suicide bomber with explosives strapped around the waist, of hijacked aeroplanes and of bombs placed under a park bench. To think of terrorism only in terms of acts carried out by terrorist groups, however, is to seriously misunderstand its true nature.  It is not restricted to extremist factions such as ETA or Al-Qaida, but is also perpetrated and supported by governments.

 

In this fully revised and updated introduction Rosemary H. T. O’Kane offers a concise yet comprehensive exploration of the groups, states and regimes of terrorism across 2000 years of history up to the present day.  Exploring new cases such as Darfur, Sudan and the spread of Islamic groups after 9/11, the book also includes:

  • An updated chronology extended to 2011
  • A document section with eighteen important documents on terrorism, a full glossary, and a who’s who of important figures
  • A full colour photo plate section and two world maps, depicting terror regimes and terrorist group bases
  • Case studies and explanations for each form of terrorism

This text is an ideal introduction for students studying the subject of terrorism within the disciplines of history, politics, international relations, peace and conflict studies, criminology and sociology, as well as anyone with a general interest in global politics.

 

Rosemary H. T. O’Kane is Emeritus Professor of Comparative Political Theory at Keele University (Emeritus since 2009). She has written widely on the subject of terrorism in both books and journals.
