"could not be more timely... an outstanding study that dares to think the unthinkable and to move beyond the conventional wisdom that has thus far failed Western societies in their battle against terrorism." Efraim Karsh, The Sunday Telegraph "highly readable overview of some of the moral and practical questions relating to America's 'War on Terror'" Dan Lerner, Financial Times "Perhaps America's most brilliant public intellectual, Alan Dershowitz attacks the central challenge of our times - terrorism - with ruthless honesty and striking originality, delivered in a narrative so compelling that the pages seem to turn themselves." Richard North Patterson, author of Protect and Defend "Critical reading for anyone interested in the legacy terrorism has left us, how our previous weak responses have encouraged more of it, and how we can end it." William J. Bennett, author of Why We Fight: Moral Clarity and the War on Terrorism "Dershowitz has a great deal to say - and to teach us - about the balance we are now struggling to achieve between domestic security and civil liberty."
