Since the 1970s, Turkey has suffered 35,000 deaths through terrorism, yet the PKK terror group was only recognized as such by the European Union in 2002.
The realization that terrorism poses a world-wide threat is now forcing a keen reassessment of the struggle which Turkey has had to wage with terror for over thirty years while the world looked on. Terror is clearly now a key part of the international agenda and this authoritative account details and establishes the Turkish experience.
This chronological account of terrorist attacks inside Turkey and against Turkish targets outside the country, places them in the global setting.
This book will be of great interest to all students and scholars of international relations, terrorism and security studies.
