Randall D. Law is Associate Professor of History at Birmingham-Southern College.
"Exceptionally rich and sophisticated in analysis, Randal Law's much needed updated edition of Terrorism: A History is a welcome addition to the currently available literature and deserves to be read not only by students and academic specialists but also by security analysts, policy makers and general readers". Professor George Kassimeris, University of Wolverhampton "Terrorism continues to evolve, not erode. Professor Law, in this second edition, continues his examination of this evolution up through ISIS and other contemporary violent actors and provides additional insights to increase your understanding of terrorism today. His book remains the one to read for anyone seeking to understand terrorism, its history, and the thinking and motivation of those who practice it." Ed Rowe, Colonel, US Army (Ret.); Office of the Secretary of Defense Staff (Ret.)
