The Strategic Logic of Suicide Terrorism

Political scientist Robert Pape identifies the main causes that lead to terrorism, in this informative streaming video discussion hosted by Conversations with History host Harry Kreisler. Here Pape traces the history of this particular tactic of suicide terrorism; an epidemic of what was once guerilla-led violence that has now taken on a more complex dimension in the post 9/11 world.

After pointing out its origins, and sketching out the character of the people that perpetrate these attacks, Pape then offers his opinion on how the U.S. and other world leaders should address the issue on a strategic and diplomatic level. Watch this fascinating lecture offered for free and available on Google Video.

"Bill Maher has the courage to speak his mind - no matter what the consequences - something you can't say about most people these days. And he's damn funny! Now, more than ever, the country needs his outrage. Agree or disagree with him, there is no question that what he has written in this book should be front and center in the great national debate and I, for one, am thrilled that this cantankerous s.o.b. is still there doing battle for the republic we all love." - Michael Moore

"Bill Maher loves America, hates conventional thinking, and, despite his curmudgeonly image, has a heart of gold. In the war on terrorism, we could use a little less tolerance and sensitivity and a little more manly anger. In this book, Bill leads the way hilariously." - Ann Coulter
