Description: China . . . Malta . . . Madagascar . . . Wales . . . and Texas: these are among the many exotic, distant lands that capture our minds and imaginations. In an era of increasing globalization, students, general readers, and business professionals need to know about the world and its varied ways. So too, a knowledge of world cultures is fundamental to an understanding of America's ethnically rich society. Folklore isn't just about the long ago and far away. It's about the here and now, and there's no better way to learn about cultural diversity than to study the folklore and folkways of different ethnic groups.
       More than just Cinderella and other fairy tales, folklore encompasses the whole realm of traditional beliefs and activities that define a culture. The most comprehensive work of its kind, this massive encyclopedia engagingly and authoritatively surveys folklife and traditions from around the world. Through its vast scope and lengthy entries, it transcends other references on particular national or regional folklores and is the most ambitious undertaking of its type. Organized in four volumes, the encyclopedia provides convenient access to information about folklore generally and to the traditions of particular regions:
Volume 1: Topics and Themes, Africa, Australia and Oceania
Volume 2: Southeast Asia and India, Central and East Asia, Middle East
Volume 3: Europe

  • A list of entries and a cumulative subject index, repeated in each volume, offer convenient access to the vast body of information contained in the encyclopedia.

    The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 on the World Trade Centre in New York and the Pentagon in Washington represented a true watershed in world history.

    The attacks revealed the horrifying nature of the so-called "new terrorism" that has emerged in the post-Cold War era. The new terrorism is defined by four key features:
    • sheer lethality

    • religious dimension

    • networked organizational structure

    • greatly enhanced striking power  

    As September 11 clearly demonstrated, the new terrorists can leverage on technology to inflict catastrophic damage even on superpowers, let alone other states.
    To examine the new dimensions of terrorism, a conference was organized in Singapore in late March 2002 that brought together a number of leading experts from a wide range of backgrounds from America, Europe and Asia, and the key findings are presented in this volume under the following headings:
    • Anatomy of the new terrorism

    • Terrorist trends and patterns in the Asia-Pacific region

    • Religion and terrorism: Southeast Asian perspectives

    • Formulating counter-strategies  

    About the Author:
