ENCYCLOPEDIA OF TERRORISM. Cindy C. Combs and Martin Slann. As recent airplane hijackings, the Oklahoma City bombing, and the ongoing conflicts in the Middle East have shown, terrorism is an unfortunate reality that can have potentially devastating effects on governments, businesses, and individuals.
