Dating from the 1970s, terrorism has evolved from a domestic to a transnational, global phenomenon: from ETA and the IRA to Al-Qa’ida and the Japanese Red Army. Yet, despite much analysis, the antecedents, causes and consequences of this product of modernity remains elusive for scholars, students and professional analysts alike. Clarence (“Gus”) Martin and Fynnwin Prager do much to address this gap in our knowledge in this impressive and insightful volume.
A timely but very original contribution to the field of terrorism and homeland security. It provides a clear and holistic examination in terms of the events, ideas, motivations , theories and histories of terrorism.
A common theme runs through this astonishingly comprehensive study of terrorism. It is what Thucydides called war – ‘the human thing’. This book, as the authors claim is, first and foremost a study in human behaviour. A rigorously researched, pioneering work packed with disturbing and at times arresting information. It is unlikely to be superseded for some time.
Terrorism is a masterful work with detailed accounts of the topic and approaches from a variety of angles. This comprehensive volume is indispensable and will appeal to readers well beyond the realm of terrorism studies.
The book offers exceptional and incisive coverage of the issues.
