In the 1984 and 1988 editions of Political Terrorism: A (New) Guide to Actors, Authors, Concepts, Database, Theories, and Literature by A.P. Schmid and A.J. Jongman, a ‘World Directory of Terrorist and Other Organisations associated with Guerrilla Warfare, Political Violence, and Protest’ was included, listing 2,160 armed and militant groups. The present directory is an update. Because of space limitations, it was decided to include only the names of the more than 6,400 organisations listed here (in Appendix 7). In the Glossary to this handbook, the reader will find brief descriptions of some of the more prominent ones. For others, the reader will have to turn to the internet or to subscription-based data providers such as Jane’s Terrorism and Insurgency Centre (JTIC) to find more information.
