Book Description

Bowman is the author of "Morning Ran Red" and "Operation Monarch", historical mystery thrillers based on fact.
When The Eagle Screams is Bowman's non-fiction work, written to warn America that the age of terrorism is upon us. Written in 1993 and published in 1994, today it is notable as the first work by an American writer to recognize the threat of terrorism, having predicted both the domestic and foreign terrorist attacks, our response and the resultant economic and religious war.


Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Bowman sets out to prove that a single terrorist could bring the United States's oil supplies to a halt, incinerate an entire city, and perhaps even destroy the country's electrical grids or stop the world's money supply-all to challenge cherished democratic and economic principles. In sometimes thrilling prose, he describes many incidents that may have been the work of terrorists operating in the United States. Unfortunately, little solid evidence is given to support his assertions. There is some truth, however dificult to surmise, in Bowman's overall conclusions regarding the difficult relationships that Westerners may have with the rest of humanity, but these difficulties can be remedied only when acts of violence are desensationalized. As public opinion is mobilized further to enlarge the gulf separating us from the rest of the world, basic issues become more difficult to address, especially those concerning right vs. wrong. Unfortunately, this volume does not contribute to any kind of entente between peoples and, seemingly in an effort to scare the reader, reaches doubtful conclusions.

4.0 out of 5 stars An important topic which is hard to ignore. September 2, 1998
Format:Hardcover
At first this book bothered me with it's lack of references. Bowman would make an assertion (or state a fact, depending on your views) but not provide a reference for fact checking. Some of the government reports he quotes do not even appear in the bibliography. One example of this is when he refers to "a 1979 government report." Looking in the bibliography, there are no references at all from 1979. My question: "Which report?"
In spite of this recurring problem throughout the book, there are some very important points which he makes. Our country is completely reliant on energy distribution systems that are vulnerable to disruption.
When I finished the book, I felt like he started out with his conclusion (the last 3 or 4 chapters) and then wrote the rest of the book to support it. This didn't work very well, but... the conclusions are important enough that I have a hard time dismissing the book as I was initially ready to do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for our national future! July 6, 1997
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This book tells us the public secrets none of us realized until the World Trade Center bombing. Without telling terrorist how to destroy us, the author helps us all to realize that international terrorism is not just an easily ignored horror overseas, but is imminent to us. Our lives, our dreams; the very survival our country may depend on how our leaders deal with the issues in this book.
Our country's web of utilities and other services have bound us together, and supported us through decades of hard times. They may now be our downfall

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome read.. but the Kindle edition has an issue. September 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Although dates back quite a bit, but it is an awesome insight into the organization of terrorists and their mindsets. What is still valid probably is the mindset that drives fanatics to act the way they do!
Must read.
But the trouble with the kindle edition is, some words are unnecessarily hyphenated, and hence when You use the text-to-speech converter and listed, at times it becomes weird.... but that is too minor an issue when compared to the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! January 2, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It is amazing how this book was so accurate in predicting the events, theories and concepts leading up to and beyond what happened after 9-11. Although a bit long winded at times this book was a very interesting read. I would recommend this book go anyone looking to get some insight on why some groups and people act the way they do. The sad part is that it was written after the first world trade center bombing in '93. It is more revalent toady than it was when the book was written

3.0 out of 5 stars Important subject, but a dry read
The author tackled an important subject years before 9/11, but the book was tough for me to read because it was pretty boring in a lot of places.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well
It seemed a bit too paranoid for my liking. I gave it to my uncle who is now literally carrying a gun and looking over his shoulder for terrorists. Read more

My husband liked the book. The kindle was his birthday gift so he downloaded anything free to read. This was one of his choices. So far, he has enjoyed most of his books.
