Following previous trends of suicide bombings and violence against Western and local hostages, the 2005-2007 period saw a continuing tide of terrorism. Mickolus catalogues these recent insurgencies and technique, including airplane hijackings, letter bombs, food tampering, and major assassinations. An extension of his other other works, including terrorism dating back to 1980, this comprehensive chronology also provides follow-up material to prior incidents and enumerates their effects on current airport security measures around the world. This volume expertly details key players in each event, ranging from the terrorist whose violence created an atmosphere of fear and anxiety, to their unknowing victims.
This work is divided into three sections: incidents, updates, and bibliography. In the first two segments, both domestic and international terrorist attacks are examined within security and political contexts to shed light on how the events unfolded. The extensive bibliographic data is also an invaluable resource for scholars, international organizations, and students.
"In this exhaustive, two-year catalog of international terrorist actions, Mickolus (co-author, Terrorism, 2002-2004) organizes events by year, month, and day.... Researchers will find the 22-page, thematically organized bibliography extremely practical. Recommended for world history and peace-and-conflict studies collections."
"… this series remains the most comprehensive chronology and bibliography on international terrorism. This new supplement is recommended for academic collections."
"This is a useful introduction to researchers desirous of having a period chronological listing of international terrorism incidents."
"...The result is a relatively comprehensive chronological catalogue of terrorist acts. . . . For a quick assessment of domestic and international terrorist acts during this period, from which students and analysts can ascertain patterns of events and perpetrators, the Mickolus chronology is the place to start."
