Editorial Reviews

?Hewitt presents a chronology of terrorist events in the United States and Puerto Rico between 1954 and 2005. Simplifying the criteria for entry, Hewitt used the FBI's definition of terrorism. Over 3,100 entries include acts of bombing, shooting, kidnapping, and robbery; groups include black militant, anti-abortion, Jewish, and other groups (foreign and domestic). Entries include date and type of event (November 10, 1971--Attempted Bombing), faction responsible, incident location, and details of the action....Readers should not bypass the introduction; it contains an excellent explanation of how crimes are defined as terrorist rather than sexually or racially motivated....Recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and up; general readers.?-Choice
