Blood and Rage
A Cultural History of TerrorismBook - 2009
"A learned and erudite book. Burleigh seamlessly synthesizes vast amounts of historical material and provides often riveting accounts of terrorist atrocities and the literary and political environments where they took place. . . . Thoughtful and nuanced. . . . An exceptional synthesis." -- The New York Times Book Review
"Burleigh has said that a new book about terrorism is published every nine hours. Judging by his own work on the subject, he has read all the others." -- The Boston Globe
From one of our most respected historians, Michael Burleigh (The Third Reich: A New History), comes a fascinating and provocative study of terrorism, from revolutionary Europe to today's Islamic jihadists.
