About the Book

This comprehensive chronology provides coverage of every international terrorist attack covered in public literature—including newspapers, news magazines, radio, television, websites, and other media—from 2008 through 2012, plus updates on events that occurred before that period. It notes trends in suicide bombings, violence against Western and local hostages, letter bombs, food tampering, major assassinations, and other attacks by terrorists of all stripes. Changes in security measures around the world are also included, as are the key players in each event, ranging from terrorists to victims to individuals trying to prevent the next attack.
