Kushner (chair, criminal justice, Long Island Univ.), a noted terrorism expert and frequent guest on CNN, CNBC, and Fox News, here provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date work available on this subject. Begun a year before the 9/11 disaster, this guide presents more than 300 article-length entries, arranged alphabetically and covering such topics as terrorist groups, key terrorists, types of terrorism, and terrorist events (including 9/11). The work begins with an alphabetical list of entries, which are then categorized into 32 general topics in a handy reader’s guide.
“Thoroughly researched and corroborated, Kushner’s book is an excellent addition to the many books published since September 11. Highly recommended.”
“Kushner has gathered the type of information for which teen researchers are clamoring: biographies of key individuals, the histories of various terrorist groups both foreign and domestic, and a full discussion of specific incidents. . . . This work is ideal for libraries looking for a one-volume reference on this timely topic.”
“It is rare to find a reference volume both as timely and as well done as this effort. Considering the importance of its subject, its global and historical coverage, and its value to researchers, students, the general reader, and law enforcement, this book is a must for every library.”
"From antiabortion and animal rights groups to separatist movements and white supremacist groups, Kushner explains the origins, motivations and activities of terrorist organizations. . . . While by no means exhaustive, Kushner's guide will provide an excellent starting point for students and is far superior to much that was rushed into print in the wake of 9/11. This title is suitable for high school, public and academic libraries. "
This title is also available on SAGE Knowledge, the ultimate social sciences online library. If your library doesn’t have access, ask your librarian to start a trial.
