This book analyzes the nature and causes of contemporary global terrorism. It examines counter-state and state terrorism, with an emphasis on the latter in light of its scale, persistence, and intensity as well as its absence from the existing literature. In essence, it discovers and predicts anti-liberalism in the form of conservatism as the main ideological source of modern terrorism.
