Amazon.com description: Product Description:

This fascinating compilation gives a succinct and objective overview of the most significant worldwide extremists and extremist groups in operation over the past 50 years. 290 alphabetically organized entries detail the notorious history, activities, and beliefs of these shadowy and often violent extremists.

Extremism has taken root and grown the world over. These 290 alphabetically organized entries detail the notorious and often violent history, activities, and beliefs of the most active and influential extremists and extremist groups in operation around the globe. Atkins highlights the dark truth that people of all ideologies, religions, regions, and races share a readiness for violence. This will be a very useful guide to students and scholars looking for a quick and easy- to-use guide to those groups and persons whose acts have unfortunately dominated headlines over the past several decades.

Well over three-quarter of the book's entries focus on extremist activity since 1980, with many entries providing historical perspectives that add a fullness of information found nowhere else. As a companion to the lauded Encyclopedia of Modern American Extremists and Extremists Groups, this work contains a wealth of information not found together anywhere else on groups and people such as English Neo-Nazis, Argentinean death squads, American ecoterrorists, Hindu xenophobes, and Japanese cults.
