9781491703106: Body Cavity Bombers: The New Martyrs: A Terrorism Research Center Book

. . . authoritative account of a significant new terrorist tactic that is likely to become more pervasive in our increasingly sophisticated technological and medical age in which it is becoming easier for the terrorist adversary to use the types of body cavity bombs that will be capable of evading detection technologies Dr. Joshua Sinai, Washington, DC-based consultant on counterterrorism studies and author of Active Shooter: A Handbook on Prevention. "Body Cavity Bombers shows how what was once a lurid Hollywood fantasy has emerged as a legitimate threat, dissects the risk with clinical precision, and soberly considers the remediation options" Dr. Nils Gilman, Director of Research at Monitor 360 and co-editor of Deviant Globalization. "A timely and important book about a disgusting subject. In showing how the human body might be used to carry and conceal explosive devices, terrorism experts Bunker and Flaherty have left no stone unturned" Dr. Martin van Creveld, one of the world's leading writers on military history and strategy, with a special interest in the future of war, and author of twenty books including The Transformation of War. "Those in the front line of identifying and taking necessary action to counter these new techniques of destruction would be well advised to read Dr. Bunker and Dr. Flaherty's realistic assessment" Dr. Stephen Sloan, internationally recognized terrorism scholar and author/co-author of fourteen books on terrorism.

About the Author:

Dr. Robert J. Bunker is adjunct faculty with the School of Politics and Economics at the Claremont Graduate University. Dr. Christopher James Flaherty is an active contributor on security, terrorism early warning and related international intelligence issues.

Review:

"The body cavity bomb (BCB) blew Asiri asunder in a truly gruesome fashion but did not kill Nayef. The world was thus introduced to the latest tactic in al-Qaeda's campaign of suicide terrorism. Four years later, Bunker, a senior fellow with Small Wars Journal, who once held the title "Futurist in Residence" at the FBI Academy, and Flaherty, a London-based security, terrorism, and intelligence expert, examined this incident and others in an important and chilling new addition to the emergent field of suicide terrorism studies."  A.J. Caschetta, Middle East Quarterly.

"As I wrote (for full disclosure) in a blurb for this book's cover, that this is a highly innovative andauthoritative account of this new terrorist tactic. e volume's chapters discuss subjects such as emergingadversary tactics (including by Al-Qaeda) in the use of body cavity bombers against high value targets, theblast effects of such explosive charges, technologies to detect body cavity bombs, and future trends in suchwarfare." Dr. Joshua Sinai, Perspectives on Terrorism.
