The Triumphs and Failures of Israeli Counterterrorism

Daniel Byman

  • Authoritative narrative history of terrorism and counterterrorism in Israel, a country with more experience dealing with terrorism than any other
  • Highlights the lessons that the Israeli experience offers for all nations, especially the United States
  • A cautionary tale of how a disproportionate response to terrorism exacerbates the root problem by further alienating targeted populations
