Written by Stanley Weitzman.
Published by Whitecap Books, 2006.


There is perhaps no subject more timely, contentious, and difficult to tackle than terrorism. This title examines the global phenomenon of terrorism from its historical onset to the present day. What exactly is terrorism? Why do people become terrorists? How do they operate? Why do they commit these crimes? Can it ever be stopped?

Written with young readers in mind, Terrorism is one title in the Global Issues series which looks at the important issues affecting our world. This series explores a controversial topic via one person's experiences followed by an examination of the facts offered by a panel of specially selected experts and supported by a wealth of resource materials.

Each title is written by an educator and is well-researched and carefully edited to be a significant and useful resource for young readers at home and school. Adults, too, will appreciate the open and sensitive treatment of each subject.
