Blood and Rage: A cultural History of Terrorism

BookBucks Review and collect 30 points.
"In this gripping study, award-winning historian and commentator Michael Burleigh explores the nature of terrorism, starting with its origins in the West to the present-day global threat of jihadist violence. Focusing on the lethal resentments and twisted morality that drive them, Blood and Rage reveals how terrorist groups organise and operate; who they are and how wider support encourages them. They are the problem, rather than us." "Moving assuredly from the first deadly acts committed by the Irish Republican Brotherhood and Russian Nihilists through to the violence that accompanied decolonisation and the terrible mutation of the Arab-Israeli conflict into international terrorism, Burleigh's searing analysis lays bare the complex workings of the terrorist mind. In vivid, engrossing prose, Blood and Rage explores the backgrounds and mindsets of people engaged in careers in political violence, as revealed by the actions of organisations such as the Black September faction of the PLO, the Baader-Meinhof gang, ETA and the IRA."--BOOK JACKET.
