The New Terrorism

Fanaticism and the Arms of Mass Destruction

by Walter Laqueur

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
15 Hrs. 17 Min.


Though this book was written before September 11, 2001, it provides prescient insight into the forms of terrorism we are experiencing today. Beginning with a history of terrorism, Laqueur charts a trend: whereas the old kind of terrorist wanted to extract concessions, new terrorists just want to damage as much as possible. Needless to say, we have seen just this in our current affairs. Laqueur goes on to prophesy the damage that can be caused when chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons of mass destruction fall into terrorist hands, and brings up the very real prospect of cyberterrorism. This book is essential for understanding our current predicament and for coming to grips with the uncertain future.
