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 1988, and provides statistical materials. A listing of terrorist perpetrators and breakdowns of incidents by tactic, by target, and by region are included in the appendixes.
