Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Fighting terrorism is a difficult and complex task. Unlike other wars that America has fought there are no clear-cut frontlines or easily identified enemies. Rather, it is a shadow war where the front is unseen and omnipresent. In order to wage such a conflict American and allied forces need to adopt tactics and strategies that have yet to be clearly defined. The opponent in this struggle is highly motivated and lethal. Thus, how can that opponent be suppressed? In the illustrated Hunting Down the Terrorists, Corona covers topics such as the role of the armed forces, technological efforts of the war on terrorism, alliance building, interrogation approaches, and legal pursuits. Throughout this fast paced book the author balances her subject matter. For example, in the chapter dealing with international terrorists in custody, Corona discusses the troubling subject of prisoner abuse and the efficacy of torture. She asks if can we maintain our own self-expressed moral supremacy over the terrorists if we adopt such brutal tactics? It's unclear how the war on terrorism will evolve. However, Corona has provided younger readers with a carefully constructed roadmap of where we have already traveled in our efforts to combat terrorism. 2004, Thompson Gale, Ages 12 up.
—Greg M. Romaneck
School Library Journal
Gr 6-9-This book has concise and accurate information and reads like the daily newspaper. However, it is not current enough to document Saddam Hussein's capture. Corona pays a lot of attention to details and the facts. She dwells mostly on the Middle Eastern circumstances vis-a-vis the United States, offering very little about the international perspective. The text gives good information about modern warfare from many aspects, such as technology or covert operations. All of the black-and-white photos are credited. With current circumstances changing every day, this book may be outdated before it even reaches the shelves.-Joel Bangilan, Houston Public Library, TX Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
