Praise From Your Colleagues
"I thought you would like to know that I am very impressed with Salem's Defining Documents series. Initially, I was hesitant to purchase so many primary source volumes because students generally do not like to use primary sources. Apparently, they think the language is archaic, and they don't like that the information is presented in paragraphs rather than in bulleted lists. Students' reading stamina has really declined in the last two decades. This is what makes your Defining Documents books so perfect. For each entry, background information, a summary, and the significance is provided. This helps students understand what they are reading in the document."
J.M., Virginia

While there are many definitions of domestic terrorism, it is largely characterized as terrorism in which the perpetrator targets his/her own country. Also called homegrown terrorism, domestic terrorism is defined by the U.S. State Department as “premeditated, politically motivated violence perpetrated against noncombatant targets by subnational groups or clandestine agents, usually intended to influence an audience.” The two largest categories of domestic terrorism (DT) or domestic violent extremism (DVE) are: racially or ethnically motivated violent extremism; and antigovernmental or anti-authority extremism.

  • Militia Acts of 1792
  • South Carolina Declaration of the Causes of Secession (1860)
  • John Surratt's 1870 Account of the Lincoln Assassination (1865)
