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 weapon of the weak against the strong, is a tactic as old as warfare itself. They provide a groundbreaking analysis of how terrorism has been perceived throughout history and dispel the widely held assumption that terrorism has no moral basis but is merely an instrument used for political gain. --Book jacket.
In an attempt to explore the impact of terrorism at its most basic level--that of sowing fear and anxiety--this book investigates our now centuries-long attraction to, and dread of, terror and its progeny, including terrorism, or political terror, and mass murder. Through interviews with survivors of terror, from the Holocaust, Dresden fire bombing, and Nagasaki to the 9/11 and Madrid attacks, Terror, Terrorism, and the Human Condition seeks to point our way toward a more hopeful future by providing concrete suggestions on how to combat terrorism without waging a "war on terror."
