Terrorism, 1992-1995: A Chronology of Events and a Selectively Annotated Bibliography
This is the author's fifth chronology on international terrorism. The volumes cover the period from 1968 through 1995, and provide the most comprehensive picture of international terrorist activities ever published. As with the last four volumes, this one also contains a bibliography on the key literature on the topic.
Terrorism in the period covered by this volume, 1992 to 1995, followed many of the trends seen in the previous two decades. While most people recall the spectacular events, those were infrequent due in part to the security cooperation of like-minded governments. Most terrorist events were low-level bombings with few casualties. But the period saw the advent of a new type of terrorist non-group. Composed of small, loosely organized bands of zealots with widespread contacts, they have made combatting terrorism all the more difficult. Given the problems of tracing groups and uncovering patterns, this volume will be invaluable for scholars and researchers involved with contemporary nationalism, fundamentalist groups, and international terrorism.
