Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Published two years ago as Modern Jihad in a British edition from Pluto Press, this first full U.S. release adds a chapter on globalization and a new preface to what is perhaps the most systematic treatment in print of how terror is financed. Journalist Napoleoni has a doctorate from the London School of Economics, and she traces 50 years of Western economic and political dominance in developing Muslim countries: backing repressive, corrupt regimes, fighting the Cold War by proxy and blocking the legitimate economic ascendancy of millions of people. In sometimes riveting, sometimes pedantic prose, Napoleoni weaves interviews and first-person accounts of her encounters with terrorists with a fascinating close analysis of the connections among drug cartels, gunrunners and major Western economies in the network of financing for terror organizations: "billions of dollars generated by narcotics are laundered in the United States; between 30 and 40 percent enter the US economy, while the rest is pumped into the international illegal economy"—to the tune of $1.5 trillion a year. Avoiding the sometimes inflammatory political and religious rhetoric that characterizes many of the debates about terrorism, Napoleoni offers a sobering look at its economic roots. Agents, Roberta Oliva and Daniela Ogliari.(Apr. 20)

Review

"Penetrating, lucid and essential." —Harry Porter, author of Empire State

"Napoleoni has accomplished an extraordinary task of research in tracking, finding, and graphically describing the financiers and the institutions supporting global terrorism, including al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden." —John K. Cooley, author of Unholy Wars

"This thoughtful and incisive inquiry yields much insight into some of the most important issues of today, and tomorrow." —Noam Chomsky

"A masterpiece … This book should be required reading for everyone in the White House, State Department, and Pentagon." —Greg Palast, author of the New York Times bestseller The Best Democracy Money Can Buy and The Jokers Wild: Dubyas Trick Deck playing cards

More About the Author

Loretta Napoleoni's first book, the bestselling Terror Inc: Tracing the Money Behind Global Terrorism, has been translated into twelve languages; her second, Insurgent Iraq was an early look at the growing insurgency led by al-Zarqawi (and came out just as American media and government were recognizing his power). Napoleoni holds an MA in international relations and economics from Johns Hopkins University, and a PhD in terrorism from the London School of Economics. For her work as a consultant for the commodities markets, she met often with officials of many Middle Eastern nations. Her latest book is Rogue Economics: Capitalism's New Reality (Seven Stories Press).

Loretta Napoleoni is the world's expert on terrorism financing. She is very well known in Europe as the sole writer who has explained the international economic system created by armed organizations since the end of WWII.

I have just attented one of her lectures in San Francisco and was amazed at her knowledge and undersanding of the phenomenon.

I think her book should be a required reading for anybody who wants to know the truth about the world we live in.

The book is fascinating, written like a thriller will have the reader stay up all night turning the pages.

Well done and congratulation,

Richard

Format: Paperback
Nopoleoni's research into the subject of teeror fincing is incredibly thorough and unparalleled. I initially purchased this book as a source for a research paper, but quickly found myself completely engaged in her writing.

The author not only tackles the most obvious and current situations of Islamic fundamentalist terrorism, but she also provides an in-depth look into such groups as the IRA and the Red Brigades, and why this information is relevant to terror financing.

Napoleoni spells out very clearly that terror is just as much, if not more, of a business than it is an ideolgy. She has coined the term "terror state-shell" to decribe the voids created in areas, such as Chechnya, in which terrorist investors scramble to find recruits by offering financial stability to these poverty-stricken areas.

The author also clearly examines, step-by-step, the methods by which money leaves your hand and reaches terror groups.

Compelling book!

The most compelling piece of literature I have stumbled across in a long time. The thoroughness that Napoleoni has demonstrated in her research is what makes Terror Incorporated my new measuring stick as to what constitutes investigative journalism.
