International terrorism did not begin with the September 11 attacks in 2001: it has a legacy which spans centuries. The History of Terrorism provides you with foundational knowledge of terrorism throughout time and space, and introduces you to the strategies and concepts exploited by terrorists to threaten civil society. Through the examination of pre-modern terrorism and the French Revolution, you will gain an understanding of precursors to modern terrorist violence. You will examine terrorism across the ideological spectrum to understand the complex nature of the threats, including left wing terrorism, right wing terrorism, religious terrorism, and lone actor terrorism. Finally, you will assess the efficacy of historical counter terrorism approaches to understand the challenges in countering terrorist movements.
