Library Journal Review

Combs (political science, Univ. of North Carolina, Charlotte; Terrorism in the Twenty-First Century) and Slann (Introduction to Politics: Governments and Nations in the Twenty-First Century) offer a highly accessible, information-rich guide to the figures, events, and consequences of international terrorism, both historical and contemporary. Organized alphabetically by topic name, the 350-plus entries run from a single paragraph to several pages long. New and updated entries include "Army of God," "biological agents," and "Egyptian Islamic Jihad." An appendix contains charts detailing terrorist-related patterns, while a two-month, day-by-day time line documents international responses to 9/11 and critical global events leading to the invasion of Afghanistan. Fully indexed and featuring a six-page bibliography and black-and-white photographs, this edition is highly recommended for both specialized political science collections and public libraries.

CHOICE Review

Combs (UNC Charlotte) and Slann (Macon State College) offer a revised edition of a 2002 work that serves as a useful introduction to persons, organizations, places, events, and concepts related to terrorism. Helpful features include a chronology of major terrorist acts since WW II, a day-by-day account of events following 9/11, and a select bibliography. Most of the entries are very good, with the ones titled "Attack on America" (9/11) and "The 9/11 Commission Report" being particularly noteworthy. As with any selective subject encyclopedia, the choice of topics poses the main problem for the volume, e.g., Charles Manson seems a far more appropriate subject for a criminology encyclopedia than a work on terrorism. The space devoted to various topics could also be considered unbalanced. The entry titled "State Terrorism" devotes eight paragraphs to the abuse of prisoners by US soldiers at Abu Ghraib, and only one paragraph to what occurred there under Saddam Hussein. The coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is also somewhat selective. Although some imbalance of coverage is unavoidable, especially on such controversial issues, one hopes the next edition will deal with this concern. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-/upper-level undergraduates, general readers, and high school students. D. Durant East Carolina University
