Description
The "Global War on Terrorism," declares Mockaitis (history, DePaul U.), "has become one of the most socially enervating and politically debilitating phenomena in recent history." He argues that this has come about as a result of the myths, misconceptions, and oversimplifications that run through the popular perception of terrorism and preclude a sober cost-benefit analysis of terrorism's real risks. Offering this book as a corrective, he describes the patterns and trends of global terrorism, analyzes the evolution and ideology of Al Qaeda, and proposes a counterinsurgency model for combating terrorism to replace the current war model.
