How can I find information about Terrorism?

"Terrorism is the use or threat of violence to create fear and alarm.  Terrorism is usually committed to promote a movement or cause.  Acts committed by terrorists have included setting off bombs, murdering and kidnapping people, and hijacking airplanes."  (Source:  Mackaitis, Tom. "Terrorism." The World Book Encyclopedia. vol. 19. 2012. Print.)
