It is only a matter of time before there is another Muslim extremist terrorist incident in the United States. This seems inevitable given the insensitive way in which many minority Muslim sections of the US population have been treated, the increased focus on the US as a result of its international counter-terrorism campaign post 9-11 and the continuing detention of about 660 Muslim 'suspects' at Guantanamo Bay. In Terrorism and Counter-Terrorism the author explains the many different branches of terrorist groups and activities they have been involved in from 1968 until today. From regional terrorism to religious terrorism, terrorism financing and macro-terrorism, Clive Williams reveals the history behind these groups.
