Fully revised and updated. For those of you who are using this for Veritas and thinking you NEED this 2nd edition, please note that we've compared it to the newer 3rd edition. It was nearly identical, but it had slightly less information about 9-11 and the War on Terror, and a few more links to websites for more information.
