History of Terrorists in Brief book
Terrorism, as a phenomenon, rears its ugly head through a vast array of tactical methods, causing physical and/or psychological damage, occurring in the physical and/or the cyber world, and is guided by a wide range of ideologies, be they political, religious, or philosophical. Terrorism typically involves causing physical harm or the threat of violence, usually to induce a sense of fear within the community at large. Terrorist attacks often go beyond the immediate physical harm they cause, as their victims often experience long-term psychological damage and posttraumatic stress after the terrorist incident.

Nationalism as an idea began to rise on an international level in the 20th century. During this particular time, national identities became of greater importance to people in different territories.
