It's a regrettable reality that in today's world: terrorist activity is becoming commonplace, fueled by hatred, frustration, extremist ideology, or religious fervor. Once perceived as an isolated tactic of very few societal outsiders, terrorism is now understood to be a pervasive problem that often involves highly sophisticated and organized cells with underground channels of communication that encircle the globe.

The Terrorist List: Asia, Pacific, and Sub-Saharan Africa; Western Europe; Eastern Europe; North America; South America explores biographical information of international terrorists dating back 35 years. Compelling, readable, and comprehensive, the set illuminates both central and supporting figures via true stories of tragedy, mischance, and heroism. The wealth of information provided makes it an indispensible reference resource for students of international terrorism, as well as provides general readers with an engaging and disturbing examination of the human costs of terrorism.
