Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
No punches are pulled in this alarming study of a $1.5-trillion terrorist economy that is as integral a part of the Western economy as banking or big oil. So compelling is Italian economist and journalist Napoleoni's indictment of the West for the creation and sustenance of international terrorism that she believes this is the reason publication was nixed by her commissioning publisher's board of directors. Napoleoni traces 50 years of Western economic and political dominance in developing Muslim countriesbacking repressive, corrupt regimes, fighting the Cold War by proxy and blocking the legitimate economic ascendancy of millions. "As in the Crusades," in which Napoleoni finds many modern parallels, "religion is simply a recruitment tool; the real driving force is economics." The only way those left behind by globalization can afford to fight back, the author says, is with the proceeds of crimedrugs, arms, prostitution, gems, smuggling, even slaveryall fueled by the West's addictions and other "poisonous dependencies" and laundered and reinvested by the West's own financial industry. Interviews with former terrorists, intelligence officials and world-class economists enliven this thoughtful and informed analysis, but evidence of the FBI and CIA being prevented by the Clinton and Bush administrations from fully investigating the real (Saudi) sources of Islamist terrorism and of the real motives for the campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq could create a political firestorm here and abroad. (For another take on this subject, see Rachel Enrenfeld's Funding Evil, reviewed on p. 56.) Agents, Roberta Oliva and Daniela Ogliari. (Oct.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    from a reader

    This is a unique book, the first describing the birth and development of an economic system run by armed organizations. Gracefully written, it reads like a novel. I simply could not put it down. Napoleoni offers the first comprehensive explanation of the motives behind modern terrorism. This is a must read for anybody who wants to know more about the world we live in.
