This book is an attempt to clarify the often murky connections between terrorism, terrorists, and terror. It is designed for the general educated audience interested in recent events, the history leading up to them, and the prospects for dealing with the after effects. Using personal accounts from people who have lived through various forms of terror (survivors of the Dresden fire bombing, Hiroshima, the 9/11 attacks, and others) the book explores terror and its use as a weapon. Providing a unique perspective on terrorism, the book places current events within the broader context necessary to understand how we got here and where we are going.
