An Anatomy of Terror: A History of Terrorism Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From antiquity to the present day, in the east and the west, the methods and motives for terror are disturbingly similar. In An Anatomy of Terror, Andrew Sinclair takes a detailed trip through the dark side of humanity, from Muslim assassins and the Crusades to Timothy McVeigh and Osama bin Laden. He encounters many links between seemingly disparate groups and illumiantes the strategies that terrorists employ to recruit soldiers. This book examines all facets of terror with a sweeping exploration of history, from the early role of terror as a tribal force to its incorporation into religious terrorism and politically-fueled violence.

About the Author

Andrew Sinclair is a novelist, historian and filmmaker. He is a lecturer on history, cinema, and English literature.
