This book is a detailed description of the history and practice of assassinations worldwide. Gerhard Falk chronicles the assassinations of political leaders and other prominent people and includes the names of the assassins and their motives. In particular, this book shows how anarchists in Europe and America fueled the flames of hatred and discontent on both continents, mainly among the poor. Assassination, Anarchy, and Terrorism records the writings of such major anarchists as Proudhon, Bakunin, and Goldman. The book also discusses terrorism as practiced in the United States, including the Ludlow Massacre, the Haymarket riots, the Wall Street bombing, and more recently, the attack on the Federal Office building in Oklahoma City. Special attention is given to the assault by Muslim terrorists on the United States, including the numerous attacks on Americans in Lebanon, Africa, and the Middle East, as well as the attack on the Pentagon and the destruction of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Falk concludes with an analysis of the violence depicted within the book and shows that the motives and intentions of the terrorists are often quite different from their public pronouncements. Assassination, Anarchy, and Terrorism is an invaluable addition to the study of criminology in an area of research seldom included in the usual criminological literature.
