Terror in the Name of God: Why Religious Militants Kill - Jessica Stern Stern talks with terrorists of various kinds. It is interesting, sometimes a bit tedious, and there are definitely instances in which it appears that she is fronting for the CIA instead of trying hard to listen to these people, but overall it is an intriguing document. Most valuable perhaps is a final chapter on ways to deal with this growing danger.
