Terrorism: Documents of International and Local Control is a hardbound series that provides primary-source documents on the worldwide counter-terrorism effort. Chief among the documents collected are transcripts of Congressional testimony, reports by such federal government bodies as the Congressional Research Service and the Government Accountability Office, and case law covering issues related to terrorism. Most volumes carry a single theme, and inside each volume the documents appear within topic-based categories. The series also includes a subject index and other indices that guide the user through this complex area of the law.
Volume 92 charts the course of Hezbollah's rise and Lebanon-based violence over the last five tumultuous years of that country's history. The documents collected in this volume demonstrate not just key details in Hezbollah's direct war on Israel but also the organization's public relations and financial efforts, both over the Internet and in collaboration with Iran. But this volume's usefulness can be found not just in its detailed history of Hezbollah's multi-front campaign but also in several documents' analysis of the suffering endured by Lebanese citizens, including the harm wrought by israel's response to Hezbollah. To complete the picture of Lebanon's difficult recent history, Volume 92 also provides two classes of UN documents: Lebanon's own reports on its counter-terror work, and the Security Council's measures related to the tribunal investigating Hariri's assassination. For researchers seeking one volume in which all parties affected by the Lebanese crisis present their view, this volume will prove quite valuable.
