Terrorizing Ourselves

Why U.S. Counterterrorism Policy is Failing and How to Fix It

Terrorizing Ourselves exposes and decries how politicians manipulate fear for political purposes, and it cuts through the confusion that Americans have about terrorism and shows how to counter it. As the book illustrates, anxiety about terrorism is driving military adventurism, exploding the national debt, militarizing domestic affairs, and shifting expenditures away from other urgent priorities. To replace the counterterrorism policies that are now failing, Terrorizing Ourselves offers disciplined responses that can defeat the internal logic of terrorism and erode its power as a tool against the United States and other Western nations.
