From the scourge of letter bombs and a detailed look at the Unabomber and the Oklahoma City tragedy to many little-known incidents nationwide, this is a troubling look at THE NEW BOMB MAKERS.
Bombs are the fastest growing lethal weapon deployed in the name of crime. In the past decade, there has been a startling 425% increase in the number of bombings in America--in 1995 alone, there were over 3,000 such incidents. But while the newspapers scream of terrorist attacks, the truth about this trend is widely unknown. INVESTIGATIVE REPORTS tracks down the real story from the agents in charge of preventing these crimes, newspaper accounts of thousands of bombings, and even the bombers themselves. Discover how bombs have been embraced by amateurs and how political or protest motivations are behind only 1% of American bombings. These are not terrorist attacks, but the sordid results of lives gone off track--today the bomber is likely to be a spurned lover, an irate employee or a vengeful neighbor.
