--Microform Review

Modern-day terrorism is a threat to every society. With today's weaponry, increased terrorist brutality, and sophisticated communication networks, terrorism has become an international issue of increasing urgency. For researchers and others concerned with global security, receiving information about terrorist activities here and overseas is crucial.

Terrorism: An International Resource File is a response to the need for a centralized source of this often-scattered information. This unique collection documents the historical, sociological, psychological, medical, political, economic, scientific, and legal aspects of terrorism and provides a knowledge base for research.

Comprehensive Index, Bibliography, and Online Guide
The collection gives access to thousands of prime documents in the microfiche series and additional bibliographic citations. In addition, the collection has a 7-volume printed guide and comprehensive print bibliography covering policy statements, position papers, lectures, reports, newsletters, conference proceedings, broadcasts, manuals, and other material drawn from a number of prime governmental, non-governmental, and intergovernmental sources. Each annual index references documents from all regions of the world as well as from international organizations such as the United Nations. All aspects of terrorism are covered: from motivations to responses; from hostage-taking and nuclear intimidation to state-sponsored terrorism and the role of the media. All documents and citations are discoverable by author, title, subject, geographic area, and document type.

Important Documents
The collection’s contents have been selected in consultation with an International Advisory Board and experts in the field under the editorial oversight of Dr. Yonah Alexander. An internationally recognized expert on terrorism, Dr. Alexander established the first terrorism study center in the United States, is author and editor of over 30 books on the subject, and was formerly Director of the Institute for Studies in International Terrorism at the State University of New York. Dr. Alexander is also associated with the Center for Strategic and International Studies, the U.S. Global Strategy Council, and the Institute of Social and Behavioral Pathology.

Terrorism: An International Resource File is a unique service of value to students, teachers, researchers, journalists, law enforcement personnel, government officials, and all others concerned with issues of terrorism.
