Defining terrorism as "the deliberate creation and exploitation of fear through violence in the pursuit of political change," the author focuses on the French Reign of Terror, Islamic states, the PLO, the IRA, European Communist movements, and small fringe millenarian groups throughout the world. Tracing the history of these groups, he explores the characteristics of certain categories, including ethno/nationalist, separatist, religious, and international terrorism. He also examines the terrorist psychology; the relationship between terrorism, the media, and public opinion; and future trends, including the possible growth in the use of weapons of mass destruction.
