Encyclopaedic Survey of Global Terrorism in 21st Century, 5 Vols

by R.K. Purthi

Condition: See description

Anmol Publications Pvt. Ltd., 2002. Hardcover. New. In the twenty-first century, terrorism is no longer a marginal and localized problem for our governments, but has become a major security priority. Terrorism today is all-invasive-every day, throughout the world, bombs are set off for a thousand different reasons; it has also, however, dramatically changed from its past forms. As such terrorism has emerged in multi-faceted forms and dimensions-religious, state, revolutionary, and narco etc. The monster of terrorism is taking world population into its grip. Recent terrorist attacks on America show a strange twist in terrorism tactics. Terrorists have emerged as more powerful than the mighty nation-states. It is feared (as in one recent interview Osama bin Laden revealed that he has acquired nuclear bomb) that terrorists are having sophisticated weapons of mass destruction including lethal bio-weapons. This encyclopaedic work is designed to bring together the authoritative information on the genesis, manifestations, diversification and psychological causes of global terrorism and its impact on world order in the 21st century. Besides the academic worth, this work in five volumes will be highly useful and informative for the social scientists, policy planners, judicial and police officials, diplomats and general readers. Printed Pages: 1574.
