Terrorism’s Long Trail of Secret Cells

Lecture no. 24 from the course: The Real History of Secret Societies

Terrorism’s Long Trail of Secret Cells

Taught by Professor Richard B. Spence | 32 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

From the 1920 Wall Street bombing to the events of 9/11, see where secret societies have embraced terrorism as a mind game throughout history. Most secret orders are more or less harmless, but Professor Spence peers inside some which have used violence to further their agendas, including the Ku Klux Klan, the Red Army Faction, the Weathermen, the Symbionese Liberation Army. Professor Spence also provides an overview of the evolution of Islamic extremism.
