9781612001180: The Complete Encyclopedia of Terrorist Organisations

The Encyclopedia of Terrorist Organizations is a comprehensive guide to terrorist organizations past and present showing the name of each group's background and history. Readers may be surprised to learn that there are so many terrorist organizations actually based in the United States. This book gives the reader background information on these groupings and discusses their motivations for taking to the gun as a means of trying to affect change.

One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter is a well-known expression. Some of the main groups covered include the Taliban in Afghanistan, Aryan Nations - a white supremacy group in the United States, and Hezbullah in the Middle East.

The groups covered also have associated organizations that are included in the encyclopedia. This book provides an understanding on how they operate, their ideology, their motivation, and what makes one group tick and another tock.

Paul Ashley served for over twenty eight years with British Armed Forces. In the last five years of his service life he was a Resistance to Interrogation Instructor, De-briefer and Hostage Survival Instructor. Since leaving the armed forces he was invited to Iraq where he worked as a private security contractor.

Review:

“This concise encyclopedia outlines key facts about hundreds of organizations with political aims that they are willing to pursue violently... Organized alphabetically, each entry notes the region of operation, national affiliation if any, and a detailed gloss explaining their background and motivating ideology.” (Book News)

“Ashley, who served with the British Armed Forces and worked in Iraq as a security advisor, created this directory of known terrorist organizations. Alphabetically arranged, the short entries cover the various organizations' ideologies, countries and continents, histories, and significant terrorist activities. Ashley profiles a wide variety of organizations, including such well-known groups as al Qaeda and Shining Path, defunct groups such as Cuban Omega 7, government opposition groups such as the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, and organizations for which little is known, such as Sweden's Revolutionary Socialists. Particularly useful are the descriptions of lesser-known American groups, such as the Republic of Texas, that employ nonviolent tactics, including instigating fraudulent legal actions or creating fake government documents to terrorize victims. ... worthwhile...”– (CHOICE)

“...useful book for anyone interested in national security” (The NYMAS Review)
