Based on original material, this book looks at the US and Israeli experiences dealing with the weapon of suicide terror. The authors draw conclusions about the future use of the weapon in the US and provide the policy maker, first responder, and student of homeland security with a thorough understanding of this weapon. The text creates, through re-enactments based on eye-witness testimony, the look and feel of actual incidents. Utilizing extensive case studies, the book points out how best to prevent and confront this very dangerous threat. Using extensive interviews with relevant US and Israeli personnel, this book speaks in the language of those responsible for understanding, preventing, and confronting this threat. The authors present the definitive study of suicide terror, and they do so through synthesizing the experience of a variety of well-known and qualified Israelis and Americans who have dealt with this unique terror weapon.
