From one of our most trusted counterterrorism experts, a sweeping, insider's account of the decade-long chase for America's deadliest enemy.This comprehensive, landmark history chronicles our ongoing battle against al-Qaâida, the greatest threat the West has faced in the modern era. An internationally recognized authority on terrorism and counterinsurgency, Seth G. Jones presents a dramatic narrative of the on-the-ground police work; the elaborate, multiyear investigations led by the CIA, FBI, and Britainâs MI5; and the shifting and deadly alliances between terrorist groups that have characterized the conflict. With gripping detail he recounts the against-the-clock hunt for the Times Square bomber and reveals startling information about Osama bin Ladenâs behavior during his final days. Drawing on recently declassified documents and court materials, transcripts of wiretapped conversations, and interviews with current and former government officials from the United States and key allies, Jones navigates the âwavesâ (al Qaâida attacks) and âreverse wavesâ (successful efforts to disrupt alâQaâida), explaining how we might analyze past patterns in order to successfully counter al Qaâida and its allies in the future. 8 pages of photographs; 16 maps
