Editorial Reviews


"The Soviet Union is being depicted at a conference on international terrorism as the patron, armorer and strategist for most of the extremists who have left a trail of blood across the Western world. This theme was introduced by U.S. Senator Henry M. Jackson and developed in detail by the meeting's star participants, all prominent in the research and analysis of terrorist operations."

Chicago Sun Times

"Most of the participants would have agreed that the first political task at hand on the issue of terrorism is to cut the idea of terrorism loose from the connection it now has in many Western liberal minds with notions of national liberation and social justice; only then can terror be viewed plainly as a crime and a threat. But their second task is to establish another kind of connection, and make people see terrorism not as just a random occurrence but as a tactic in the Soviet war against the West."

The Wall Street Journal

By Melvin Wood on December 9, 2001
Format: Paperback
I started this book because I wanted to try to understand terrorism. I got much more than that. Mr. Netanyahu describes with great passion what he personally has experienced, including the loss of his brother, from terrorists strategy and tactics. This book is an easy read, but I found myself constantly stopping and thinking and feeling how we Americans would respond if we had been terrorized as long as Israel has. Over & over you see where we have been negligent in our intelligence and preparation for the defense of America for the hate crimes that have been perpetrated against us as against Israel. You don't have to be pro-Israel or anti-Israel to enjoy this book. I have bought many copies to get my friends and relatives to read to see what we, as Americans, will have to face for many years as we try to eliminate terrorism in the world.

Format: Paperback
Published in 1995 before he became the Israeli Prime Minister, Netanyahu begins this book with a most rational and considered perspective, but by mid-way the discussion degenerates into historically "enemy" bashing. Possibly written to muster "hard-line" support for the election, this book unfortunately adds little to the debate, even though it would be hard to argue that he is not one of the leading contributors to the topic.
