Audible Editor Reviews

Dave Courvoisier’s colorful, conversational tone enlivens renowned political scientist Leonard Weinberg’s adroit examination of global terrorism: that faceless, stateless, yet all-too ubiquitous entity and the myriad social, political, and religious factors that influence terrorist acts and inform their ramifications.

Is ensuring the safety of a populace worth sacrificing certain civil liberties? How effective is military action in response to terrorist activity? These are tough questions with no easy answers, but Courvoisier's lively delivery coupled with Weinberg’s expertise make this essential listening for those wishing to gain a deeper understanding of this complex and unsettling issue.
