This book had the potential to be an interesting read. It consists of short histories on a variety of terrorist attacks throughout history. However, the book was poorly edited it made one wonder if the facts in the book were handled as badly. One example: instead of Marx-Lenin it was Marx-Lennon.
The one possitive thing about this book, is that it could serve as a starting point for further reads on specific terrorist incidents. ( )
