"Focusing on a variety of both prominent and less notorious terrorist groups the author encourages readers to think about the mindset, motivation and tactics of terrorists. He also discusses the lines of thought linking contemporary and leading terrorists of the last 30 years." "David J. Whittaker analyses examples of terrorists working as individuals, such as Timothy McVeigh, and those working in groups, such as al-Qaida, over the last two or three decades. He goes on to discuss the problems of countering these terrorists and possible future forms that terrorism might take."--Jacket."
