'This book is not an examination of what terrorists do or even why they do it but of why they are terrorists in the first place. It is both chilling and informative ... there is a lot of provocative reading in this book about the nature of organisation, control, targeting, communication, counter-insurgency.' - Contemporary Review
'The book is more than worth the price of admission: thematic chapters on topics such as ideology, recruitment, organization, command and control, logistics, operations, the end game, and the enemy each is a lucid exposition of that aspect of the armed struggle.' - Choice
'The book will sometimes seem provocative, often wise, but always based on personal observation and long experience.' - International Affairs
'An admirable study of the armed struggle ... this book provides many remarkable insights into the culture of terrorists.' - Times Literary Supplement
'A serious attempt to analyse low-intensity conflict in a variety of locales .. his book provides a succint treatment useful to both academics and a wider audience .. .the author's breadth of knowledge and insight is commendable ... this is a very useful study of terrorism, one that can be recommended to students.' - English Historical Review
