Abstract:

"These 290 alphabetically organized entries detail the notorious and often violent histories, activities, and beliefs of the most active and influential extremists and extremist groups in operation around the world. Atkins highlights the dark truth that people of all ideologies, religions, regions, and races share a readiness for violence." "A majority of the book's entries focuses on extremist activity since 1980. Many entries provide historical perspectives that add an unprecedented fullness of information. This work, a companion to the Encyclopedia of Modern American Extremists and Extremist Groups, contains information that no other single source can offer, covering such groups and individuals as English Neo-Nazis, Argentinean death squads, ecoterrorists, Hindu xenophobes, and Japanese cults."--Résumé de l'éditeur.
