It also examines the organizational structure of terrorist networks, how they are financed, and their ideological agendas. Groups covered include: Islamic fundamentalists, white and black racists, black nationalists, revolutionary communists, neo-nazis, militant Jewish groups, anti-abortionists, and emigre groups.Understanding Terrorism in Americanprovides a highly readable account for interested readers wishing to know more about a topic which has recently become tragically relevant in world affairs.
