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

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