What is terrorism and where does it come from? Who are the people who perpetrate terror? What are their motives? This accessible account of the concept of terrorism provides a global guide to understanding what the threat is and exactly where it comes from. Without this knowledge, argues David Whittaker, there can be no way forward in prevention and control.
