Description

Since the 1960s the US has seen its overseas interests threatened by terrorist groups more than any other country. During this period, the nature of these attacks, coming from left-wing, anarchist, religious, and nationalist terrorist groups, has varied and evolved immensely. For the first time, Anti-American Terrorism chronicles the development of these threats, considering the issues that triggered them, the states and terrorist organizations that carried them out, and the targets attacked and tactics used. From Johnson to Obama, this book devotes a chapter to each US presidential administration, and assesses in scrupulous detail the anti-American threat posed by Marxist, state sponsors, Islamic revolutionary, and Palestinian terrorists, before describing and comparing the counter-terrorism strategies, policies, tools, programs, and actions constructed to confront these threats.Drawing on his extensive and varied experience as an academic and 28 years working as a US government terrorism analyst, Dennis Pluchinsky provides an invaluable historical record of the development of and reaction to anti-American terrorism. This timely account will be of use to academics, policymakers and analysts alike, for it is only in fully understanding the terrorist threat that we can refine our response to it.
