The authors of this book served on the National Security Council, and the level of expertise, knowledge, and commitment they bring to their complex project is staggering. In addition to warning listeners about the dangers posted by radical Islamist terrorists, they explain their origins and American attempts to respond to these threats. (Later chapters also examine terrorist actions committed by Christian, Jewish, and less definable cults.) The work balances the best qualities of scholarship and timely journalism and reads at times like a thriller. Jonathan Marosz's narration matches his subject matter perfectly. His tone is intelligent and concerned, and he shifts pace and volume to match the urgency of the writing. G.T.B. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 03]
