Terrorism: A History

Author(s): Randall Law

Politics

Terrorism is one of the forces defining our age, but it has also been around since some of the earliest civilisations. This one-of-a-kind study of the history of terrorism - from ancient Assyria to the post-9/11 War on Terror - puts terrorism into broad historical, political, religious and social context. The book leads the reader through the shifting understandings and definitions of terrorism through the ages, and its continuous development of themes allows for a fuller understanding of the uses of and responses to terrorism.
