Instead of focussing on conceptualising terrorism this book concentrates on what the author identifies as "... the most salient and important trends in terrorism - both past and present..." This book provides a useful historical view on terrorism, organised into themes such as the post-colonial era, religion and terrorism and the role of the media.
Well researched and with an extensive bibliography this book is an important text by an author who has written extensively on the subject.
