The book deals with the treacherous and macabre acts of terrorists all over the world. After successfully attacking the World Trade Center and Pentagon with precision the terrorists attacked many other places in India and abroad and are still issuing threats now and then. Within a gap of few months the terrorists attacked the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly building and the lndian Parliament House, while it was in session. The places of Hindu Temples became their soft targets. Raghunath Temple in Jammu, Aksharadam Temple in Gujarat, Sri Ram Temple in Ayodhya and SankatmochanTemple at Varanasi were attacked claiming the lives of many innocent persons and security personnel.
After the sacred Hindu temples, trains, trade centers and public places became their easy targets as we could see inMumbai, Delhi, Andhra Pradesh and London. The terrorists also created chaos in Bangladesh, Jordon and Indonesia by exploding bombs. Though the world leaders in several of their meetings and conferences condemned the brutal acts of terrorism but still it is unabated.
Osama bin Laden who masterminded the collapse of the World Trade Center is still hiding spreading the tentacles of terrorism across the world. Though, democracy has been restored in Afghanistan under the, active support of the allied forces the Talibans are still indulging in terrorist acts of killing innocent people. Terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir are attacking "both the, civilians and security personnel.
Readers will recollect the facts while reading the book and it is a good addition to the library collection for the use of future historians, politicians and other social scientists to analyze the origin and causes of this malady of terrorism. Probably the present phase of terrorism has both economic and religious factors which may result in a Third World War and unimaginable destruction.
