Summary
"Old and New Terrorism provides the most comprehensive account of the evolution of terrorism in the modern world, and a concise and careful analysis of the forces that have driven its transformation. Peter Neumann offers a subtle and sophisticated picture of the shifts in the practice and reception of terrorism, drawing on case studies ranging from the IRA to Al Qaeda. He makes sense of much of the literature that has been published over the past decade and also provides an original analysis of how globalization has facilitated many of the changes that have materialized in recent years."--BOOK JACKET
