Carr, Matthew

Infernal Machine

A History of Terrorism

€ 29.95

A narrative account of the assassination of Tsar Alexander II by Russian revolutionaries in 1881 St. Petersburg evaluates the event`s links to modern-day terrorist practices throughout several diverse countries, in a historical survey that argues that the true impact of terrorism has been felt through the overreactions of governments and the media.
