International Terrorism and Political Crimes
International Terrorism and Political Crimes
Edited by M. Cherif Bassiouni
Charles C. Thomas, 1975, 594 pp.

A compendium which focuses on terrorism from the perspective of international criminal law in a remarkably even-handed manner. Human rights, the role of the media, the insights of psychology, and the causes of wars of national liberation are successfully blended with discussions of hijacking, kidnapping, and related political crimes.
