Abstract: 

In this volume, Lutz and Lutz bring a historical perspective to the evolution of terrorism throughout the past 2 millennia, beginning with ancient Western civilization and ending with the familiar terrorism of today. Despite the large span of history covered, the authors have succeeded in creating a brief guide that will not overwhelm students of terrorism with intricate theories and empirics. Instead, Terrorism: Origins and Evolution offers a succinct, context-rich focus to the wide array of terrorist groups existing throughout the world’s history
