Stephen E. Atkins

Gives a succinct and objective overview of 290 of the most significant extremists and extremist groups active over the past 50 years 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. The majority 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 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 British Neo-Nazis, Argentinean death squads, American ecoterrorists, Hindu xenophobes, and Japanese cults. Addresses a topic of great contemporary concern Focuses on extremists from all regions, religions, and ideologies
