In response to the governmental, military, scholarly, and public need for a detailed and accurate compendium of international terrorist incidents and trends in worldwide terrorist activity, RAND annually publishes a chronology of international terrorism. The chronology contains data on international terrorist incidents since 1968, derived from the open literature — newspapers, journals, radio broadcasts, and the foreign press. It provides a comprehensive database with which trends in various aspects of terrorism can be analyzed. This report details and analyzes incidents recorded in the chronology of international terrorism for 1987. A statistical abstract based on the chronology, as well as several pertinent charts, tables, and a bibliography of terrorist perpetrators, are contained in the appendixes.
