Reviews

A vitally important book. Bruce Hoffman has for decades been one of the world's greatest scholars of terrorism, and this new edition of his classic study is impressively wide-ranging and authoritative. Covering key issues such as definition, historical evolution, and internationalization, it also addresses thematic subjects such as religious terrorism and suicide attacks. The book serves as a valuable corrective to the amnesia of so much recent work on terrorism, and it will offer readers powerful insights for many years. -- Richard English, author of Does Terrorism Work?: A History
