Editorial Reviews

“The articles in this book . . . discus the major terrorist threats to the US, including radical Islam, al Qaeda, Iran, Hezbollah, and Hamas, as well as methods used by terrorists, especially suicide bombing. The authors offer important facts and details on each of the threats and what the US might do to counter them. From a military or intelligence points of view, the book has great value because of its facts and statistics. Summing up: Recommended. Most levels/libraries.”--Choice
