Lucent Terrorism Library

The Lucent Terrorism Library examines the wrenching events of September 11, 2001 as well as the history and personalities behind terrorist acts committed in the United States and elsewhere in the world.

Each volume in the set uses a variety of primary and secondary source quotes to enliven the narrative. The set includes a companion primary source anthology that contains numerous first-person accounts from witnesses at the scene; from the American government and public; and from political leaders and commentators abroad. All books feature annotated bibliographies, maps, and photographs. This set serves as an excellent resource for research projects and class discussion.

For now just three issues, the rest would be more then appreciated!
