LexisNexis UPA Collections, Special Studies, Terrorism, 1975-2005
While the September 11, 2001, attacks on the United States changed the consciousness of all Americans regarding terrorism, since the 1970s, as a result of events such as the murder of Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics and the hostage crisis in Iran, international terrorism has been a top concern for U.S. policymakers. The Special Studies series on terrorism consists of reports from federal executive departments and agencies, the Congress and congressional research organizations, military colleges and research agencies, and selected private and international sources. The documents cover specific terrorist acts, trace the origins of terrorist movements, contrast domestic terrorism with extraterritorial threats, compare state-sponsored and independent terrorist activities, and address counterterrorist measures and policies.
