Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

When a distinguished State Department analyst produces a tightly written assessment on terrorism, as Long does here, the effort deserves attention. He tackles the crucial elements of national and ethnic identities of many disenfranchised groups which foster violence and by doing so elevates the public debate a notch. It is refreshing to read, for example, that "killing is not a primary aim of most terrorists" and that terrorists react to "a deep sense of political injustice." Far from condoning violence, Long sketches a somber reality rather than resorting to cliches. He recommends that targeted countries cooperate at the bureaucratic level (to avoid turf wars in gathering intelligence), increase reliance on Interpol (to widen the worldwide police net), and, whenever needed, engage in covert actions. Essential reading for its erudition, sharp analysis, and intellectual honesty. Recommended for public and research libraries.
