GLOBAL TERRORISM - THE COMPLETE REFERENCE GUIDE. Until recently, the odds of an individual becoming a victim of a terrorist attack in a democracy like the United States were minuscule. However, the ability of a small number of terrorists -- like those who attacked the World Trade Center and the Pentagon -- to strike a sudden devastating blow highlights how increasingly vulnerable we are. The proliferation and
availability of sophisticated weapons have made the issue of terrorism more urgent than ever. Terrorist groups no longer rely solely on firepower to make their message heard; as bioterrorism and cyberterrorism become possibilities, the range of victims affected can be far greater than previously imagined. Global Terrorism is a balanced examination of the complex political and social issues surrounding this phenomena.
