Origins of Terrorism

Subject Name: 

Russian & Eurasian Studies

Course Number: 
Mount Holyoke College
Russia was the first nation in the world to face political terrorism. In Russia, the era of terrorism lasted from the 1860s, when the People's Will group launched the hunt on the tsar Alexander II, until 1918, when the Socialist Revolutionary Party attempted to assassinate Lenin. A case study of terrorism in Russia will help us to answer a number of questions highly relevant today. What are the causes of terrorism? What are its goals and methods? What can governments do to cope with it? What is the impact of terrorism on society?

This course is open to Juniors and Seniors.
