I will be teaching an elective course on Modern Terrorism next year and am looking for help developing the currriculum and more urgently, finding a textbook suited for high school seniors. Any help would be appreciated.
Only things spring to mind: the first is Walter Laquer's old book on terrorism, but that thing's 20 years out of date. Gerard Chaliand's History of Terrorism is pretty good and has the benefit (or liability, depending on your prespective) of tracing it back to antiquity.
Thanks Robert. I am still interested in the information, but am not teaching that class this year. However, I may be able to use part of it this year in another class. Can you post more info about it or a link to it?
