About the Author

Robert Kumamoto is Professor Emeritus of History at San Jose State University.


"Kumamoto provides a much-needed study of terrorism in early US history. The author uses a wide range of case studies, including early groups like the North Carolina Regulators and the Green Mountain Boys, to better-known groups like the Ku Klux Klan and the Molly Maguires. Each study is extensively researched and finely written. The strength of this work is its breadth. This welcome and necessary addition to the literature on terrorism places this controversial topic in a new perspective. Summing Up: Highly recommended."
-W. B. Whisenhunt, College of DuPage, in CHOICE
"With The Historical Origins of Terrorism in America, 1644-1880, Robert Kumamoto ... offers an eminently readable survey of early terrorism on American soil. ... Overall, The Historical Origins of Terrorism in America is a fascinating and quite readable work; it is a substantial contribution to a relatively neglected area of historical scholarship. It will be of interest not only to students of early American history, but to any reader seeking a useful perspective on the motivations that lead to the use of political violence."-C. Dale Walton, Lindenwood University, in Comparative Strategy
