"This work, the result of years of painstaking research, presents a comprehensive description and analysis of modern terrorism, plague of today's world. While showing how the nature of terrorism has evolved and changed, it gives a penetrating insight into the violence of man and the forces he will have to deal with if he is to survive. Today's terrorism threatens not only individual societies- it threatens international order and the future of mankind."--Jacket

Chronologically presented is the slow development of Russian language instruction in America from the latter part of the 18th century at Kodiak, Alaska, to the establishment of large undergraduate departments at leading universities. The influence of Harvard University, the University of California, Columbia University, Pennsylvania State University, and the University of Pennsylvania is well documented. Sputnik of 1957 serves as a major chronological division in this historical overview. Economic, political, cultural, and religious influences behind the growth of Russian study and forces opposed to its expansion are given detailed attention. Appendixes list past and present officers of the American Association of Teachers of Slavic and East European Languages. An extensive index is included. (Rl)

The Moscow puzzles; 359 mathematical recreations by B. A Kordemskiĭ( Book )

10 editions published between 1975 and 2016 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is, quite simply, the best and most popular puzzle book ever published in the Soviet Union. Since its first appearance in 1956 there have been eight editions as well as translations from the original Russian into Ukrainian, Estonian, Lettish, and Lithuanian. Almost a million copies of the Russian version alone have been sold. Part of the reason for the book's success is its marvelously varied assortment of brainteasers ranging from simple catch riddles to difficult problems (none, however, requiring advanced mathematics). Many of the puzzles will be new to Western readers, while some familiar problems have been clothed in new forms. Often the puzzles are presented in the form of charming stories that provide non-Russian readers with valuable insights into contemporary Russian life and customs. In addition, Martin Gardner, former editor of the Mathematical Games Department, Scientific American, has clarified and simplified the book to make it as easy as possible for an English-reading public to understand and enjoy. He has been careful, moreover, to retain nearly all the freshness, warmth, and humor of the original. Lavishly illustrated with over 400 clear diagrams and amusing sketches, this inexpensive edition of the first English translation will offer weeks or even months of stimulating entertainment. It belongs in the library of every puzzlist or lover of recreational mathematics

Terrorism : from Robespierre to the Weather Underground by Albert Parry( Book )

5 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A compulsively readable analysis of modern terrorism, this brilliant, vital work by a noted expert on terrorism and guerrilla warfare describes the nature of terrorist organizations and events and analyzes the changing nature and evolution of unconventional political warfare. From the genesis of the Great Terror initiated by Robespierre over 200 years ago, to the Black Panthers, the Symbionese Liberation Army, and the mass terrorism of Stalin, Hitler, and Mao, this absorbing work offers unsurpassed insight into seemingly irrational acts of violence and murder. The author, who was born in Russia and as a youth only narrowly escaped being a victim of terrorism, does a superb job of helping readers to understand the causes and nature of terrorism, and how terrorists use intimidation, violence, and bloodshed to threaten the stability of society
