About this book

Terrorism is often seen as a Middle Eastern problem and terrorists are often perceived as only having a Muslim background. It may surprise many to learn that Americans are and have been terrorists since the birth of the nation. This book investigates and discusses many instances in which Americans were themselves the terrorists and the victims.

Reviews

"An in-depth, thoughtful, well-written and highly accessible case-study of the history of terrorism in the United States. The authors successfully debunk popular conceptions of terrorism suddenly being a threat to the United States. The book proceeds in a logical fashion, one that is useful to students, instructors, scholars, and the wider public."

- Jeffrey Ian Ross, author of Political Terrorism: An Interdisciplinary Approach

" This is an important contribution to the study of terrorism. It explains how terrorism is an historical phenomenon, even in the United States, and illustrates how the old versus new terrorism debate can help us understand modern terrorism in a holistic and historically accurate manner. The authors also conclude with an important and timely warning that the United States will need to deal with the threats that terrorism creates while still maintaining an appropriate respect for the civil liberties of individuals."

- Andrew Tan, Associate Professor of Social Science and International Studies, University of New South Wales, Australia
