From the foreword: "The best way to prepare and to fight back is to first understand who the enemy is. This book provides the reader with well-researched and well documented background and detail on terrorist organizations. It starts with defining terrorism and its origins and then goes on to describe present-day organizations, where they operate from, what their philosophies entail, and what their motivations and objectives are."
