Forfatteren redegør for de arabiske guerillaers betydning, hvordan de opstod, deres udbredelse, vigtigste virksomhed, og generelle tilbagegang i perioden fra 1965-1972.

Krigen udviklede sig til en udmattelseskrig med tre fløje: Fedayeen, De arabiske stater og Israel

"Forming minorities in five adjacent countries for 74 years, Kurds have been fighting for independence or autonomy, against governments reluctant to accede either. The Kurdish saga is one of periodic insurrections, partial victories, misfortunes, defeats, betrayal, national repression, clashing personalities, changing allegiances and an unusual mixture of heroism and expediency. Kurds used governments, and governments used Kurds. [This book provides insight] into both political and military aspects of the struggle, and of the motives and machinations of major personalities involved"--Publisher's website

Civil War in Bosnia, 1992-94 by Edgar O'Ballance ( Book )
11 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The civil war in Bosnia, between Muslims, Serbs and Croats, historical and traditional enemies, fought with ferocity, began in April 1992. After initial successful Serb campaigns, battle positions became entrenched, as warlords, who levied tolls on UN food aid convoys, fought a war of siege, bombardment and starvation, to defend their own locality. Western intervention was disastrous; it was a war which could not be stopped. Western policies changed from supporting Bosnian entity, to division by cantons, and variations of those positions, as negotiations continued fruitlessly and endlessly. Uprooted refugees, ethnic cleansing, atrocities, concentration camps, broken promises and deceit, all became prominent features. Distrustful of Muslims, Western statesmen refused to raise the arms embargo against Bosnia so it could defend itself, or to allow NATO (American) warplanes to bomb Serbs. In March 1994, when rival American and Russian initiatives brought about a ceasefire in Sarajevo, bombed continually for almost two years in full television spotlight, it was hoped it would spread and develop into a peace process. Much of Bosnia lay in media darkness. Bosnia may become some form of UN protectorate, a long-lasting one, as it will take time for roused ethnic emotions to cool down."--BOOK JACKET

Islamic fundamentalist terrorism, 1979-95 : the Iranian connection by Edgar O'Ballance ( Book )
14 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With the destruction of Israel as its stated goal, the Islamic fundamentalist movement has embraced terrorism as the means to this end. In his bid to consolidate power in Iran after the Islamic revolution in 1979, Ayatollah Khomeini, facing terrorist opposition, curbed it by extreme measures, gaining a taste for this form of warfare and using it as an arm of Iranian foreign policy to aid like-minded terrorist groups and embarrass Iran's national enemies. Since then, Iran has been at the heart of both the fundamentalist movement and the terrorism which seems inextricably linked to it. "The Iranian Connection" is a worldwide network of embassies and diplomatic mission - staffed with intelligence personnel - which shelters terrorists, stores their weaponry, and monitors potential targets. With this book, Edgar O'Ballance has written a readable investigative account of Iran's involvement in international terrorist activity
