From the increased stereotyping of an prejudice against foreigners in general and Arabs in particular to increases in domestic hate crimes and depression, militancy and anger, Collateral Damage examines national reactions to terrorism as a whole and is essential for any in-depth college-level military or social science collection." - Midwest Book Review - California Bookwatch
