From Booklist

The SAGE Encyclopedia of Terrorism’s second edition comes eight years after the first, which was in production as the 9/11 attacks occurred. In the intervening years, there have been a number of encyclopedias of terrorism, including Encyclopedia of World Terrorism: 1996–2002 (2003); The Greenhaven Encyclopedia of Terrorism (2007); and Encyclopedia of Terrorism (2007). More than 60 new entries and 100,000 words of new material expand the scope of the first edition by introducing new theoretical entries on topics such as economics and terrorism, international relations and terrorism, and even religious and spiritual perspectives and terrorism. In addition, the volume has updated entries on the Afghanistan and Iraq conflicts and the connections to terrorism. Following the organization and format of the first edition, the 500-plus entries are listed alphabetically, with an extended signed essay, see also references, and a bibliography of further readings. The longest article is reserved for Iraq War, which is seven pages long. Although other essays are not as long, they do include interesting facets of terrorism, such as Taliban code of conduct and Terrorism in popular culture. The volume is up-to-date, including the killing of Osama bin Laden, in May 2011. As worldwide and domestic terrorism continue to evolve, and America’s stature in the world continues to be questioned and challenged, there will be no end to revisions to this and other volumes on terrorism. Recommended for large collections and research libraries. --Jerry Carbone
