Publisher Comments:

Drawing directly on the words and ideas of terrorists themselves, this book is an examination of patterns, current trends and future threats in terrorism world-wide. It explores the ideology and psychology, the politics and policies, the strategies and operations, of many active small groups and major insurgencies. The terrorist leader emerges as a calculating, innovated and often well-educated person whose use of violence against the innocent is calibrated for maximum effects. The final chapter is a discussion of the problems of counter-terrorism, and makes several recommendations.
