Recommend highly29 December 2016 - Published on Amazon.com
I read this book as part of a continuing education class, The various articles discussed aspects of terrorism that conventional media does not discuss. The history of various middle eastern groups inclding Jewish groups was well detailed. Highly recommend it for students of terrorism.
Excellent primer19 January 2012 - Published on Amazon.com
This is one of the few scholarly texts I have read that can be easily digested both by experienced students and by those with no exposure to the related concepts. Should be on the bookshelf of anyone remotely interested in foreign affairs. Combination of history with basic psychological underpinnings of terror campaigns makes for a comprehensive, but concise, text.

An excellent book for the present day25 May 2013 - Published on Amazon.com
This book is rich not just for the book itself, but for the contributors who analyzed the core reasons, and probable solutions to terrorism.
