Book description

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-September 11 War on Terror — puts terrorism into broad historical, political, religious and social contexts. 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.

In Terrorism: A History, Randall Law gives students and general readers a much-needed long-range historical perspective. He extensively covers jihadism, the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, Northern Ireland and the Ku Klux Klan plus lesser known movements in Uruguay, Algeria and even the pre-modern uses of terror in ancient Rome, medieval Europe and the French Revolution, among other topics.

He is conducting research on terrorism and political violence in the city of Odessa in the Russian empire early in the 20th century.
