Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Army of God may not be widely known, but they are well established as an extremist Christian organization united in their belief that abortion must be stopped at all costs, including the use of violence or force. Who are the primary players in this underground terrorist group, what acts are they responsible for, and what are the motivations behind their quest to make abortion illegal in the United States?

Armed for Life: The Army of God and Anti-Abortion Terror in the United StateS≪/i> addresses these questions and more, drawing upon never-before-published interviews with members of the Army of God and their own writings to reveal the details of this grossly understudied organization—and to document what its existence and expansion says about our society.

Book News Annotation:

In this carefully researched volume Jefferis, a professor of international security studies at the National Defense University in Washington, DC, examines the loose confederation of extreme anti-abortion activists who have participated or supported violent action in support of their cause. Describing a movement based on individual action and cell-style communication rather than a hierarchical structure that is more easily defined and combated by law enforcement, the work examines the details and people behind numerous anti-abortion bombings and assassinations over the past four decades. The work is detailed and includes numerous tables and copious reference material. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
