New York Times Book Review Important...compelling....[Morgan] is intense and at times magnificent."
San Francisco Examiner Chronicle Provocative...challenging...convincingly argued and well documented....[Morgan's] writing is evocative and accessible, and her message important.
Cosmopolitan Extremely intelligent, passionate...the fresh air of original thinking.
The New Statesman Admirable....The deepest strength is her writing, which is quietly powerful and unsentimentally lyrical.
Gloria Steinem Robin Morgan shows us how terrorists are not born but made -- and how to unmake them. Her international classic sheds light, saves lives, and has come home just in time.

Top customer reviews
The author presents a lot of factual and historical data to support her viewpoints. This includes interviews with war victims and criminals, citations of government documents, treaties, war plans, references to religious and historical works, and opinions by others who have explored the role of sex and gender in politics and war.
The problem with the book and why I would not recommend it is the style the author uses. Her arguments come at the reader like bullets from a machine gun, quickfire and haphazard. Facts and examples are cited in quick succession without text to place them in context. The text is divided into chapters, but the number of arguments and sources of arguments are so numerous and varied that each chapter should be broken into subsections. Overall, the points in this book are insightful and I agree with most of them. But the writing style is horrible.
