For most Americans, terrorism made the transformation from theoretical threat to frightening reality on September 11, 2001, yet America has been the target of terrorist acts for over four decades. Piszkiewicz recounts the changing political orientation of terrorists and highlights the challenge that faces America and the community of nations in putting terrorists out of business without adopting their tactics.
