In examining such topics as the attacks on the World Trade Center; Middle Eastern terrorism from the Palestinian Hamas movement and Israeli religious violence to state terrorism in countries such as Iraq; right-wing terrorism in this country (Oklahoma City); and the specific threat of terrorists using weapons of mass destruction, students will develop a global perspective on comparative aspects of terrorism.
