The recent terrorist attacks in different parts of the world have necessitated people to crawl the internet to look for information and answers relating to terrorism activities. Terrorism dates back to the 18th century and it advances day by day. Terrorist organizations have also flourished and despite measure to counter their growth, they seem invincible due to their large networks and nefarious methods of operationThis book looks into various aspects of terrorism including an extensive historical overview of terrorism and related issues: definition of global terrorism, historic roots of terrorism politics, ideologies and strategies of both contemporary and older terrorist groups, terrorism today, recent attacks, trends in the Global Terrorism Index over the last 10 years.

Writing this book has been an insightful journey that has helped shaped my perspective on terrorism. I have come to understand why the response against terrorism is as worldwide as well as it has become.There is a lot of information out there regarding terrorism, a lot of which is not factual. To get the real facts I had to go through an intensive research on the subject from reliable information sources. The book is divided into related sections for ease of reading and referencing. You can read the section that is most relevant to you.However, I would recommend reading the whole book so as to have a holistic understanding of global terrorism and related issues.
