Abstract

A chronology of incidents of international terrorism that took place between 1968 and 1974. Most of the material is based on press reports, although other sources were used. Only incidents that had clear international repercussions were included — incidents in which terrorists went abroad to strike their targets, selected victims or targets that had connections with a foreign state (e.g., diplomats, executives, or the offices of foreign corporations), or created international incidents by attacking airline passengers, personnel, and equipment. Incidents in which groups such as the Irish Republican Army or the Tupamaros of Uruguay directed activities against their own government or citizens in their own territory were excluded, but the international activities of such groups — an IRA bombing in London, for example, or the kidnapping of a foreign diplomat in Uruguay — were included. The thousands of reported acts of terrorism in Indochina and the numerous cross-border raids by Arab guerrillas and Israeli commandos were excluded, except for the major episodes.

This report is part of the RAND Corporation report series. The report was a product of the RAND Corporation from 1948 to 1993 that represented the principal publication documenting and transmitting RAND's major research findings and final research.
