This three-volume set comprises the seventh offering in a series of chronologies of international terrorist events produced by Mickolus (president, Vinyard Software Inc.--"which specializes in databases on political violence") and Simmon (an independent writer and editor). The first and second volumes provide a day-by-day account of incidents from January 2002 to December 2004, gathered from such sources as the major Western news print media, news networks, and news sources; a few non-Western news sources; and scholarly articles, books, government reports, and conference presentations. The chronology's items report on actual attacks, foiled attacks, arrests, and even such items as reported e-mails from Osama Bin Laden. Following the conclusion of the 2002-2004 chronology, updates to incidents covered in previous chronologies are presented. The third volume consists of a bibliography, which for the first time includes all the material from the bibliographies of preceding chronologies. The bibliography is organized topically, covering regional approaches to terrorism; special topics such as hostage-taking and hijacking, narcoterrorism, media, economic terrorism, and Internet sites; legal, philosophical, and psychological approaches to terrorism; terrorism topics in fiction; and bibliographies. Also included are indexes by country and date, proper name, and subject.
