The first half of the book is very enjoyable, with the author creating a narrative regarding terrorism and the history of terror book of it. The author utilizes facts to support the thesis and does a wonderful job of exploring the roots of terrorism and not being narrowly focused on the current situation of the Mid-East and the events surrounding Sept/5.

Reviews "This book represents an interesting effort to form an all pervading model to expand the current understanding of terrorism, posing history as a mirror; The History of Terrorism: From Antiquity to ISIS exhibits an ambitious attempt to decipher the commonalities of different versions of terrorism, which is crystallised into a recommendable book for sociologists, anthropologists and.

The book is a kind of intellectual godfather to the research I have tried to do on the endings of terrorist campaigns.

This authoritative work provides an essential perspective on terrorism by offering a rare opportunity for analysis and reflection at a time of ongoing violence, chilling threats, and renewed reprisals.

In it, some of the best international specialists working on the subject today examine terrorism's long and complex history from antiquity to the present day and find that terror, long the 3/5(2). We live in an era dominated by terrorism but struggle to understand its meaning and the real nature of the threat.
