9780743452939: The Demon Lover: The Roots of Terrorism

This groundbreaking work on the psychological and political roots of terrorism by award-winning writer Robin Morgan is updated with her new introduction covering the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the US. In a new afterword, "Letters from Ground Zero," Morgan offers her eyewitness account of the physical and emotional devastation caused by the assault on New York's World Trade Center and the global struggle in its aftermath.

First published in 1989, The Demon Lover is now more timely than ever: a personal journey as well as a landmark work of investigative journalism. Traveling to the Middle East refugee camps, she gathered the first interviews with Palestinian women about their lives as women, and re-encountered the core connection between patriarchal societies and the inevitability of terrorism. In her final chapter, "Beyond Terror," Morgan sets forth a compelling vision of hope for the future.

Review:

New York Times Book Review Important...compelling....[Morgan] is intense and at times magnificent."

San Francisco Examiner Chronicle Provocative...challenging...convincingly argued and well documented....[Morgan's] writing is evocative and accessible, and her message important.

Cosmopolitan Extremely intelligent, passionate...the fresh air of original thinking.

The New Statesman Admirable....The deepest strength is her writing, which is quietly powerful and unsentimentally lyrical.

Gloria Steinem Robin Morgan shows us how terrorists are not born but made -- and how to unmake them. Her international classic sheds light, saves lives, and has come home just in time.
