The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 generated fear and concern among most Americans that we are no longer safe in our communities. However, terrorism is not a new phenomenon in the US. This book chronicles the history of terrorist plots and attacks on American soil in a case format. Included are not only the most infamous attacks, but others that are obscure or relatively unknown, but fascinating nevertheless, and which illustrate important lessons about the changing nature of terrorism.
