Terrorism is a non-fiction history short book. The book consists of a quick summary and explanation on how terrorism started, how many kinds exist, and compares certain ideologies such as comparing Jihad with terrorism or comparing Al Qaeda with ISIS. According to the book, terrorism started from the 14th century and they were mostly religious related.
Cyber terrorism is, for example, something we are facing today. Viruses, stealing information, abusing the systems are just some of the things mentioned in this book. I was intrigued in reading that Holy wars did not just take place in the Islamic tradition, they also had been in Christianity and Judaism and that recent holy wars are not religious related and are more politically based.
I enjoyed the fact that this book was written by someone that was biased. The author lays out everything in a summarized format and everything is very crispy clear. The work provides references to historical events. The author clearly has knowledge on the subject matter and has created a solid work for anyone that does not know much about the topic.
I did not think that I was going to like this book, but I did. I recommend it to people that wish to understand the issue.
