One of the defining features of the post-9/11 world is the extent to which terrorism has become a key organising principle for domestic and international politics.

Introduced by an essay exploring the complex nature of terrorism and with more than 250 entries, each containing suggestions for further reading, the Dictionary of Terrorism provides an overview of the key themes, individuals, organizations and tactics that have shaped terrorism throughout history and into the contemporary world. It covers:

  • Events such as the 9/11 attacks and the 7/7 London bombings
  • Terrorist organizations from the Assassins of the first century to the modern Zapatista Army of National Liberation
  • Biographies of individual terrorists ranging from Abu Ayyub al-Masri to Abu Zubaydah with extensive coverage given to key figures such as Osama bin Laden
  • Terrorist tactics such as bombings, hijacking and hostage taking
  • Key international counter-terrorism conventions
