Description

The terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 raise grave questions. Where did this rising tide of terror come from? Is it here to stay? And how can it be fought? In this newly revised edition of Fighting Terrorism, Benjamin Netanyahu, the leader of Israel's Likud Party and a noted authority on international terrorism, explores the old and new terrorist threats. Citing diverse examples, Netanyahu demonstrates that domestic terrorist groups are usually no match for an advanced technological society. But he sees a potent threat in the new international terrorism that emerged in the 1900s and is increasingly the product of Islamic militants. Netanyahu concludes by suggesting how democracies can defend themselves against this new threat.

Professional reviews

"This short book was written in 1995, before the author became Prime Minister of Israel, but its timeliness is obvious. Netanyahu writes with authority, and many of his warnings have become realities. His argument is that terrorism can be stamped out, but it will take enormous courage on the part of the West and blunt warnings to Arab countries that support terrorists. Narrator Jeff Riggenbach delivers a solid performance of what sounds like a very long speech. Riggenbach is interesting and understands the urgency of the subject. His deep, resonant voice is authoritative and somewhat reassuring, echoing Netanyahu's insistence that this war can be won. He keeps up a lively pace and emphasizes the author's intentions beautifully. R.I.G. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
