The SAGE Encyclopedia of Terrorism, Second Edition, is a thoroughly updated and expanded edition of the original, highly regarded reference work. Nearly 100,000 words of new material has been added, along with fully updated original entries, expanded coverage, and multimedia elements (audio and video clips, links to primary documents and more) accompany the electronic version. New entries will explore the impact of terrorism on economics, public health, religion and even pop culture. Ethical issues such as the role of torture in interrogations, competing notions of security versus liberty, and the debates over FISA legislation and Guantanamo Bay will also be covered. Two dozen entries on significant recent events - such as the London bombings, Chechen attacks on Russian interests, and the rescue of Ingrid Bettancourt - and some 60 additional new entries will restore the work as an up-to-the-minute, natural first-stop for researchers.
