About this title

Synopsis:

No country has experienced more acts of terrorism over a prolonged period than Israel. The frequency of attacks has propelled Israel toward innovative methods to address the threat. Indeed, treating so many victims of physical and psychological trauma has given rise to the new field of terror medicine.

In a gripping narrative, terrorist expert Leonard A. Cole describes how different segments of Israeli society have coped with terrorism―survivors of attacks, families of victims, emergency responders, doctors and nurses, and, in the end, the general population. He also interviews Palestinians, including imprisoned handlers of suicide bombers, who endorse or deplore suicide bombings. He concludes that the Israeli experience with preparedness and coping offers valuable lessons for the United States.

From the Publisher:

"If there is any benefit from the sad fact of terrorism that has plagued Israel's life for decades it is the possibility that other nations and other peoples might find something from the Israeli experience that can help them... Leonard Cole's book gives the fullest description of this process available today." ----Mortimer B. Zuckerman, Editor-in-Chief, U.S. News & World Report

"Leonard Cole offers a moving portrait of the way in which many Israelis cope with terror, on both a personal and institutional level. The insights of individual Israelis who have suffered from terror and found a way to cope are nothing short of remarkable. Does the United States have much to learn from the Israeli experience? The answer, as Cole points out, is surely yes. But the great value of this book is what it tells us about not giving in to terror. Ultimately, terror will be defeated when terrorists see that societies have found the means not to surrender their principles, their morale, or their humanity--and this book vividly demonstrates how Israelis have done that." ----Ambassador Dennis Ross
