Not A Great Read but Loaded With Information
on November 12, 2005
I am always excited when another book by the Saban Center is produced so when Deadly Connections was released I had to get my hands on it. The book, while dry, is loaded with facts and diagrams on top terror supporting nations. If you aren't interested in Middle Eastern affairs or terrorism than this won't be worth your money.
The author does a supreme job with describing state connections to terrorist groups across the globe, from Syria sponsoring groups like the PFLP-GC to Iran giving aid to Islamists and Hizbullah. The graphs and diagrams presented also give the facts more credibility in addition to making it easier for some to understand. For most people studying Middle East history or writting a paper on Middle Eastern nations connections to terrorist activity I would highly recommend this book. For the average person just wanting to have basic knowledge on terrorism, this may not be for them.
