Unmasking Terror Volume IV

Unmasking Terror Volume IV: A Global Review of Terrorist Activities brings together over 50 experts on terrorism. Edited by Andrew McGregor, Unmasking Terror Volume IV continues the work of previous volumes by providing an unparalleled collection of indigenous terrorism analyses to the media, intelligence, and academic communities. Like its previous volumes, Unmasking Terror Volume IV serves as an invaluable reference tool to understanding militant jihadi movements worldwide.

“The Jamestown Foundation provides an invaluable service, analyzing and tracking developments in terrorism and insurgency. For professionals in the field, Jamestown reports have gained ‘required reading’ status for their clarity and timeliness. Unmasking Terror is a crucial analytical reference: I have every volume of the series and refer to it regularly. This year’s edition looks set to continue the high standard Jamestown has set in previous years. I commend it to any student or professional in the fields of terrorism and insurgency.”

“Jamestown is one of the rare organizations tracking terrorism that analyzes the full scope of terrorist movements objectively and without ideological bias. Unlike so many other analyses that view the terrorist phenomenon from a narrow and shallow police perspective, Jamestown’s work sets terrorist activities in the broader political, cultural, sociological, and geopolitical context in which they operate–the only way it is possible to understand them–and defeat them. Indispensable reading.

“Like its predecessors, the new Unmasking Terror volume provides the most comprehensive annual survey of global terrorism trends and developments available. It is an essential research tool for anyone seeking to understand the dynamics of terrorism today and its impact on international, regional, and local security.
