  • Terrorism


The history of terrorism stretches back nearly two thousand years and terrorism, both in the forms of terrorist groups and terror regimes, is an inherent part of the modern world: from Anarchist groups to al-Qaida; from Hitler’s Germany and SS to al-Bashir’s Sudan and Janjaweed militias. It is a subject of high current interest that is rarely out of the news (not least as the legacy of ‘9/11’) and it is also of enduring interest. 

As a new volume in the Seminar Studies series, Terrorism has been brought up-to-date and now looks at both contemporary terrorism and its historical antecedents, providing a much needed introduction to the subject.
