The Second Edition of Terrorism in Perspective, like its successful predecessor, takes a broad-based approach that emphasizes the historical, political, religious, social, and economic perceptions that underlie an understanding of both global and domestic terrorism. This unique text-reader combines original essays with the best of the existing literature on terrorism. Using a conceptual scheme that focuses on acts of terrorism and their relationship to culture, religion, history, politics, economics, and ideology, the chapters of this text begin with a 10-15 page overview followed by two relevant and engaging articles culled from a wide variety of popular, academic, and governmental sources. This is the only major terrorism text to incorporate readings from top terrorism experts into a traditional textbook format.
