International Terrorism: Middle East, Eurasia, and beyond: Introduction to Terrorism


This research guide is intended to serve as an interdisciplinary guide to understanding terrorism.

This guide has a global scope but has a particular concentration on the Middle East and former Soviet Union due to the nature of the Global Resources Center (GRC) collection. It also provides resources that extend beyond the traditional realm on political science and international affairs by offering resources in the fields of science, engineering, medicine, biological sciences, psychology, etc. as they relate to terrorism research.

GRC staff contains both functional and linguistic specialists who are available to help you effectively navigate this topic and to guide you through the research process. Expert assistance from professional librarian on staff at the GRC on 7th floor of Gelman Library is available.

Please contact Mark Yoffe, Russia, Eurasia, Central and Eastern Europe Librarian, at 202-994-6303 or
