“[Streissguth] describes the political situations that have bred the rise of terrorism in an evenhanded manner. . . . A good beginning point for further research.”
School Library Journal

Each of the nine chapters in this survey of political terrorism focuses on a particular person or group. Included are Russia’s Sergei Nechaev, Michael Collins and the Irish Republican Army, Yasir Arafat and the PLO, Ilich Ramirez Sanchez (“Carlos”), Abu Nidal, the Baader-Meinhof Gang, the Red Brigades, Hezbollah, and Abimael Guzman and Peru’s Shining Path.
