    a wave of

    In Europe, the growing strength of communist parties, the revival of fascist movements, and a wave of terrorism all testify, in different ways, to the weakness of established regimes and to the exhaustion of established tradition.

    I am just curious about "a wave of terrorism". The background of the sentence is, I believe, the period of time after the Vietnam war, as this is taken from The Culture of Narcissism by Christopher Lasch, which was published in 1970s or 80s? What could the writer refer "a wave" to? Is this ONE wave? or can we regard this phrase as waves of terrorism? Thanks.

    Re: a wave of

    A single wave of terrorism taking place at that time. It was the time of the Baader-Meinhof gang, the IRA and the Palestinian Black September movement, amongst others.

    Thanks. I would have never found out the details of the terrorism so many years ago.
