Description

Osama bin Laden's Al Qaeda network is only one of hundreds of terrorist organizations around the world. Others wait for their own cues to follow similar scripts for using modern technologies to terrorize vulnerable populations. In A Faceless Enemy, Glenn Schweitzer provides a sweeping history of the technologies that are at the heart of this new and deadly terrorism and gives us a fuller understanding of the relationships between terrorists and drug traffickers, the potential threat of cyberterrorism, and the now very tangible risks posed by bioterrorism and chemoterrorism. Based on the authors' long careers in science and international politics, and drawing upon interviews with diplomats and intelligence operatives around the globe, A Faceless Enemy is a must-read for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of the complex issues related to terrorism and the future of international security.
