It may be tempting to think of terrorism as a foreign phenomenon, something that could never happen in the United States. But terrorism perpetrated by Americans within U.S. borders is very real. Domestic Terrorism chronicles the role of terrorism in American history, examining left-wing, right-wing, and single-issue terrorism. This book analyzes major American terrorist groups such as the Ku Klux Klan, the Weather Underground, ELF, and the Symbionese Liberation Army. It also includes a section on how to confront domestic terrorism. This comprehensive title is a useful tool for students who want to understand the history of American terrorism and its roots within present-day society.
