Terror in the Name of God : For four years, Jessica Stern interviewed extremist members of three religions around the world: Christians, Jews, and Muslims. Traveling extensively - to refugee camps in Lebanon, to religious schools in Pakistan, to prisons in Amman, Asqelon, and Pensacola - she discovered that the Islamic jihadi in the mountains of Pakistan and the Christian fundamentalist bomber in Oklahoma have much in common. Stern's extensive interactions with the faces behind the terror provide unprecedented insight into acts of inexplicable horror, and enable her to suggest how terrorism might most effectively be countered. A crucial book on terror, Terror in the Name of God is a brilliant and thought-provoking work.
