9780029193457: The ANATOMY OF TERRORISM

In the last two decades, terrorists have struck fear in citizens across the world, intimidating whole nations with seemingly irrational and unpredictably violence at airports, international meetings, and sporting events. Now Long, an expert in counterterrorism, presents the first accessible framework for analyzing, comprehending, and fighting terrorism. Long explores the reasoning behind the violence, identifies those who commit it, and sheds light on its financial, political and emotional supporters. Most important, he offers feasible, responsible methods for combating this dread plague and protecting us from its effects.

From Library Journal:

When a distinguished State Department analyst produces a tightly written assessment on terrorism, as Long does here, the effort deserves attention. He tackles the crucial elements of national and ethnic identities of many disenfranchised groups which foster violence and by doing so elevates the public debate a notch. It is refreshing to read, for example, that "killing is not a primary aim of most terrorists" and that terrorists react to "a deep sense of political injustice." Far from condoning violence, Long sketches a somber reality rather than resorting to cliches. He recommends that targeted countries cooperate at the bureaucratic level (to avoid turf wars in gathering intelligence), increase reliance on Interpol (to widen the worldwide police net), and, whenever needed, engage in covert actions. Essential reading for its erudition, sharp analysis, and intellectual honesty. Recommended for public and research libraries.
