The Terrorism Reader explores all aspects of terrorism from its definition, its psychological and sociological effects, and the surrounding legal and ethical issues, to counter-terrorism. It illustrates the growth and variety of terrorism with a series of twelve case studies from four continents including:

* ETA and Spain
* the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia
* the Liberation Tigers in Sri Lanka
* the IRA and UFF in Northern Ireland
* the Shining Path in Peru
* the Quaddafi Regime in Libya.

This updated second edition contains a chapter on the Taliban and the al-Qaida terror network, as well as material on George W. Bush's war against terrorism. This key book draws together material from a variety of experts and makes their opinions on terrorism easily accessible, allowing understanding, conjecture and debate.
