"The dynamics of the armed struggle assure that there is less craft to the revolutionary trade than the orthodox are apt to imagine.... All rebels are, to a considerable degree, impractical and incompetent.... The dynamics of the armed struggle are always similar;... the means universal.... While every underground is similar, each is special in its own way, in that the struggle evolves from particular historical and cultural conditions and has a specific life span and particular ancestors."

Bull, I&NS 7.4, notes that this work "brings together various specialists who analyze Italian terrorism along specific themes.... Overall, this is an important research monograph which expands considerably our knowledge of left-wing terrorism in Italy. What is missing, however, is any analysis of the role of politicians, the police and the state."
Chapman, Robert D. "Reflections on Terrorism: A Sideline View." International Journal of Intelligence and Counterintelligence 12, no. 2 (Summer 1999): 207-226.
In commenting on someone's else statement about terrorists, Chapman says, "There's truth to that." The same might be said for this article. Yes, there is truth here, but just how far does the insight of Chapman's "truth" extend? I don't know, but there are some disturbing (meaning disturbing to conventional thinking) thoughts put forward. If that effect was the author's goal, he has achieved it.

1. The Deadly Sin of Terrorism: Its Effect on Democracy and Civil Liberties in Six Countries. Westport, CT: Greenwood, 1994.
Fukiyama, FA 74.3 (May-Jun. 1995), notes that this book compares antiterrorism campaigns in Britain, Germany, Italy, France, Israel, and the United States. Most of these countries have "managed to cope in ways that have not damaged their democratic credentials.... The book suggests that the entire terrorist problem has been oversold by the media, both as a problem and as a threat to democracy." Choice, May 1995, comments that this "collection offers a good start toward a comparative analysis of terrorism, viewed mainly from the governmental perspective."
2. Democratic Responses to International Terrorism. Ardsley-on- Hudson, NY: Transnational Publishers, 1991.
Everett, MI 18.3, calls this book a "cornerstone reference about terrorism.... [Its] focus is Canada.... The chapter on 'Counterterrorism Intelligence' is one of the most useful." According to Robertson, I&NS 10.1, "most of the essays are quite wide-ranging." That, however, occasions "some disappointment," because too many of the essays "contribute little that is new or exciting."
Clutterbuck, Richard. Terrorism and Guerrilla Warfare: Forecasts and Remedies. London: Routledge, 1990.
According to Lodge, I&NS 6.2, the author "examines the current state of terrorism and guerrilla warfare and attempts to forecast developments in trouble spots.... The bulk of the book is concerned with the fire-power of modern weaponry and narco-terrorism. In that respect it is very much a book for the informed reader."
CNN. "CIA Tries New Strategy to Deter Terrorism." 1 Mar. 1999. [http://cnn.com]
On the sixth floor of the CIA's "new Global Response Center, a high-tech,... command post in suburban Virginia, CIA workers are busy with the agency's newest weapon against terrorism -- the tactic of disruption.... Typically, a disruption operation begins with a scrap of information.... The CIA might provide evidence, for instance, for a legal pretext for arrest, such as information that a terrorist cell crossed a border with false papers or illegal arms. The key to disruption is that it takes place before terrorists strike, amounting to a pre-emptive, offensive form of counterterrorism, Richard Clarke, President Clinton's counterterrorism coordinator, said."
Crenshaw, Martha, ed. Terrorism in Context. State College, PA: Penn State University Press, 1995.
Choice, Oct. 1995: This book "covers broad sets of issues, including group and state terrorism, as well as extensive geographic areas.... Overall, the book is a solid, if occasionally tedious, scholarly examination of a timely subject."
Cummings, Richard H. "The Last Tango in Munich: Carlos and the Bombing of RFE/RL." Midcoast World News Exchange. http://www.midcoastexchange.com.
Deals with the bomb attack by Carlos' (Ilyich Ramirez-Sanchez) pan-European terrorist group on Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty on 21 February 1981. The author notes that "[m]ost of the information for this article comes from the files of the ... 'Stasi.' I reviewed some of the relevant Stasi files as a result of the German government's investigation into the bombing of RFE/RL; other Stasi files have been selectively released to the media over the years."
