Publisher's Summary

Today's radical Islamist terrorist could be just a breath away from you now: a fellow student, a fellow employee or even the soldier in the next bunk. Americans today are facing an alarming new terrorist threat: "self-radicalized" terrorists. Unlike previous "sleepers" like the 9/11 hijackers who infiltrated the United States from abroad, this new breed of "self-radicalized" terrorists come from within. Many are natural-born Americans or immigrants to the US who over time radicalized themselves through radical Islamist Internet propaganda and undertook terrorist action on their own initiative with little or no guidance from overseas terrorist groups.

Unpredictable and often disguised in their previous identity as loyal American university students, government employees, or even members of the US military, this new "franchise style" of terrorist is difficult to detect. RJ Parker documents in a single volume some of the prominent and frightening recent cases of self-radicalized terrorist strikes in the United States.

This book provides a clinical review of:

  • San Bernardino shootings in California
  • The Boston Marathon bombings
  • Fort Hood shootings
  • Sniper attacks in Washington, D.C.
  • Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu attack, Canada
  • Parliament Hill shooting, Canada
  • Radicalization
  • Islam versus the West
  • Islamic terrorism
  • Influence of ISIS
  • Self-radicalization recruiting through social media

Factual, but weak on analysis

The book records factual events, such as what happened at the Boston Marathon, but offers little useful analysis of homegrown terrorism.
