Terrorism: From Robespierre to the Weather Underground
Courier Corporation, 23 de gen. 2013 - 656 pàgines
"A very impressive and comprehensive story on terrorism . . . enormously valuable."—Brian Crozier, former director of the Institute for the Study of Conflict, London
A compulsively readable analysis of modern terrorism, this brilliant, vital work by a noted expert on terrorism and guerrilla warfare describes the nature of terrorist organizations and events and analyzes the changing nature and evolution of unconventional political warfare.
From the genesis of the Great Terror initiated by Robespierre over 200 years ago, to the Black Panthers, the Symbionese Liberation Army, and the mass terrorism of Stalin, Hitler, and Mao, this absorbing work offers unsurpassed insight into seemingly irrational acts of violence and murder. The author, who was born in Russia and as a youth only narrowly escaped being a victim of terrorism, does a superb job of helping readers to understand the causes and nature of terrorism, and how terrorists use intimidation, violence, and bloodshed to threaten the stability of society.
