Book Description:

"Today's terrorists are not our fathers' enemies," writes Dr. James Blackwell, "so our military models do not adequately capture how they think and make war-fighting decisions. It's not just that their rationality is different than ours, it is that they do not think rationally at all, relying more on faith than on reason."

About the Author:

James Blackwell is special advisor to the U.S. Air Force Assistant Chief of Staff for Strategic Deterrence and Nuclear Integration.
