Beyond providing basic information on the terror groups, this reference work emphasizes the vast web of links between terrorist organizations with very different goals and ideologies. This book is not an analysis and makes no explicit argument but is an attempt to assist the general public to understand that Sunni/Shi'a and secular/religious divides are no barriers to terrorist cooperation. Also shown, where information allows, are links between terrorist groups in the Middle East and elsewhere and highlighting of terrorist infrastructure in Europe, the U.S., and worldwide.

Profiles in Terror is an accessible reference guide, detailed enough to be of use to the specialist while still of use to the general reader. Profiles in Terror is organized like an encyclopedia, with entries discussing the major terrorist organizations.
