      A short notice - I won't care if I don't exhibit myself as a politically correct person because politics around the world has given birth to terrorism! And, that must be exposed! Loretta has rightly subtitled the book - tracing the dollars behind the terror networks. This is not a hidden story that terrorism has always been used as alibi - to hide economic, political and institutional failures in the past as well as for usurping the territories of others. We all know what happened in Russia and [...]

      Solid stuff. At times Napoleoni's chapters get a touch of the fact explosions, but the general point is clear by the end. She lays out the historical development that led to contemporary terrorist movements (the funding of groups and client states by the cold war superpowers; their withdrawal and the consequent internationalization of terrorist and separatist movements and their economies; the ideal conditions for such groups being failing states, in which they can set up "shell-states," which f [...]

      Loretta is right in exposing that terrorism is the byproduct of politics around the world. However, she poses to be authority on this subject, which I find a little ambiguous! Rest all is fine with her works. I have read most of her works and Modern Jihad is even blunt than the others.

    4. Radiah on said:

      A piece of solid work, Loretta Napoleoni has managed to shape our understanding of international terrorism, its birth and thriving nature through analysis of their funding activities. The title of the book is apt – she breaks down and analyzes the source of funding of many of the world’s armed militias. Many groups are featured in the book – from the IRA, Basque groups, Islamist militants, African rebels, the FARC, and etc. What is fascinating is how the situation today was shown by Napole [...]

    5. Thomas Parke on said:

      Extremely well written and insightful book. One of the really interesting things I learnt from this was made right at the start - Napoleoni made the point that particularly prior to 9/11 terrorism was not understood of as an act of war, rather as a crime. After 911, Bush was important in developing this understanding. Really interesting to someone who has grown up and seen the effects of the 'war on terror' started by Bush and endorsed by Blair.Although I already knew that states sponsored activ [...]

    6. Sdrucciola on said:

      L’obiettivo del terrorismo, qualsiasi terrorismo, è fare sentire insicuro e fragile il suo obiettivo. Come dimostrano i recenti avvenimenti, ci riesce benissimo.Ma c’è qualcun’altro che lavora fervidamente per farci sentire sempre più spaventati: i governi che dicono di volerci proteggere.Come opporsi a questo dilagare della paura che paralizza la ragione? Loretta Napoleoni (economista esperta di criminalità nota ai lettori di Internazionale) e Ronald J. Bee pensano che i numeri siano [...]

      Napoleoni did an incredible job of establishing herself as an authority on the financing of terrorism and its integration with the global economy. The book is challenging to get through with limited interspersed narratives and stories surrounded by gluts of facts, figures, historical analyses, statistics, names, dates, etc. While I don't consider myself a novice in the world of financial crime, money laundering, and terror finance, this book really stretched me and showed me how much more I stil [...]

      If you are thinking to yourself, I am insufficiently angry about the world, perhaps something could stoke the fire of my righteous anger? This might do it. Despite being a pretty small, thin volume, this book covers a lot of ground - the Crusades, Iran-Contra, the evolution of self-funding. Groups from all over the world are discussed - narcoterrorists in Colombia, Islamic extremists, the IRA, Basque groups. My one minor complaint is that there's *so much* in here that it's a little hard to keep [...]

      Absolutely stunning book. Relevant to everyone who wants to understand the economics of terrorism and its deep roots in the post Soviet era vaccuum. This is the second book I've read by Napoleoni, and I continue to be amazed by the level of research she undertakes. If you are curious, but don't have time to commit to the whole book, I recommend reading the chapter on terror jihad and the Islamic crusades (#8). Napoleoni reveals that what we are witnessing today with the surge or terrorism is rea [...]

      I heard the author lecture at a bookstore in lower Manhattan, and although I initially hesitated buying her book - the beginning of her lecture began too "soft" - I later broached harder economic questions, which she deftly answered. Impressed, or at least positively engaged, I bought the book. I'm finding it well written and well researched, and I'm surprised that it weaves together much common, but fragmented, knowledge into a cohesive review of terrorist financing, without the partiality comm [...]

      My eyes are wide open. Napoleoni is telling how every single country in Europe, AsiaSouth America is involved now in the business of terrorism. A trillion dollar business. She traced the dollars. She named what names she could. Sometimes she tried to protect American Interests, but we got the idea. This book puts a real time spin on conspiracy theorists. This is a conspiracy involving Afghanistan, Pakistan, in particular because of the Poppy which gets converted to heroin. Wow. Am sad, awake and [...]

    12. Srđan Palomo Sánchez on said:

      Una obra de referencia en el campo del terrorismo, con referencias sólidas y una argumentación agradable bajo un hilo conductor histórico. Este libro detalla la evolución del terrorismo desde las guerras por poderes, el patrocinio estatal hasta su privatización y establecimiento de estados embrión. Estos son los responsables de la Nueva Economía del Terror, un sistema económico que les garantiza independencia en relación con el sistema capitalista mundial.

    13. Zack on said:

      Eye opening. I've read many books about terrorism and its modern roots. But this book should be required for just about everyone. ~230 pages of pure and shocking truth. Well-annotated so you can check her sources for yourself. I did on a few, and she is right on. This book is so troubling. Not much to say other than that, really.

    14. John on said:

      An excellent, reasonably objective look at the business of global terrorism. Leaving ideology aside, the book provides a cogent and thoughtful explanation of the links between enterprise (both legal and criminal) and the "new economy" of global terror.

      an exciting introduction to the world of radical islamic movements from a proficient writer

      i am gob-smacked. recommended read for anyone who cares about "foreign aid". forensic accountant investigates terror organisations and the results in this book are most sobering.

    17. Sbulf on said:

      Il libro si mostra come la controprova di una tesi (l'emergenza terrorismo) che secondo me non ha nemmeno i dati sufficienti per provare se stessa. Ne risulta un testo doppiamente convincente.
