Facts on File
What causes terrorism? It is a deceptively simple question. As with all social phenomena, there is no easy answer to this most urgent inquiry. The destruction caused by terrorists in recent years has led everyone to ask: Why did they do it? The Roots of Terrorism guides the reader through the many factors that give rise to terrorism, demonstrating that it is ultimately the interaction of these factors that brings about terrorist attacks. This broad overview of the root causes of terrorism is designed to teach an appreciation of the complexities of this social phenomenon, while exposing commonly held yet erroneous beliefs that might otherwise be construed as easy explanations. This comprehensive title is a useful tool for students who want to understand the origins of terrorism and how it has evolved through time.
