Description: Each volume of the Library in a Book series is carefully designed to be a complete first-stop resource for research on important issues and events, many of which strongly affect the United States. Clearly written and organized, the books give the researcher an objective overview of the subject and a wealth of information in a variety of formats, as well as an extensive section on additional sources -- from other books to videos to web sites.

Each book includes:
-- A historical survey of the topic
-- A chronology of significant events
-- Information on court cases and/or significant legislation
-- Concise biographies of important people
-- A glossary of terms, names, and acronyms
-- An annotated bibliography (approximately one-third of the book)
-- A list of relevant organizations
-- A detailed index.

Terrorism can be most simply defined as the use or threat of violence by a non-governmental group to achieve political or social goals. Although the odds of an individual becoming victim of a terrorist attack in a democracy like the United States are minuscule, the ability of a small number of terrorists -- like the Oklahoma City bombers -- to strike a sudden devastating blow highlights the how increasingly vulnerable we are becoming in this complex industrial and information age. The increasing proliferation and availability of sophisticated weapons has made the issue of terrorism more urgent than ever. Danger not only comes from what a terrorist could do to us, but what it can lead us to do to ourselves as a result.

Coverage includes:
-- An extensive historical overview of the topic and related issues
-- A survey of terrorism today
--Terrorism-related laws, legal issues, and court cases
-- A chronological survey of major terrorist attacks, trials, and other relevant events
-- Brief biographies of leaders of terrorist groups and academic and counter-terrorism experts
-- A glossary of terms and acronyms
-- A guide to further research on terrorism
-- A three-part annotated bibliography
-- A list of organizations and agencies providing helpful resources on terrorism
-- Informational appendices

A timely addition to the Library in a Book series, Terrorism is a balanced examination of the complex political and social issues surrounding this global phenomenon.
