Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

This sensitively-written book examines the history of terrorism and sheds light on the groups that carry out these acts. The security measures taken by countries around the world are explained as well as how they fight terrorism. Topics include

- notorious acts of terror, such as the 1972 Munich Olympics massacre and the Beslan School attack of 2004

- how intelligence agencies track suspected terrorists

- airport security and anti-terrorist squads

A timely new book on Hurricane Katrina has been added to this spectacular series which puts young readers right in the center of disasters. Each book explains the science behind the forces in nature as well as man-made forces that create catastrophic events. Fascinating text and astonishing photographs highlight

- some of history's most devastating disasters

- the types of destruction these events cause and how they affect people's lives

- the people who study, forecast, and observe them

- how to stay safe during a natural disaster and what goes into an emergency kit

- a simple activity or suggestion for observation
