This is perhaps the best book focused on terrorism as a broad subject. Martin has included information and examples from a multitude of different topics and historical situations related to the issue.

Another benefit of this book is that it was cheap on Amazon, especially when compared to other text books. This was the main source used during a Terrorism master's course I took in Fall 2015 and I was able to incorporate the book into essays for several other courses before I graduated.

This textbook was a good supplement to the class learning and introduced concepts and real life examples in an interesting way.

Very well structured and informed overview of terrorism. More information than application, and not a complete criminal justice system perspective. This is one of the two top books on terrorism that are current.
