Does Terrorism Work?

A History

Richard English

  • Written by one of the world's foremost experts on terrorism, with over thirty years' experience analysing the field
  • Focuses on four of the most signficant terrorist organizations of the last fifty years: al-Quaida, the Provisional IRA, Hamas, and ETA
  • Uses a wealth of interview material collected over the years, both with former terrorists and their enemies in the counter-intelligence, police, and security services
  • Argues that we need a far more honest understanding of the degree to which terrorism works--and the precise ways in which it does so
