The recent terrorist outrages perpetrated against the United States demonstrate the need for a new and rigorous study of modern terrorism. In Tapestry of Terror, Richard J. Chasdi offers fresh insight into the complexities of state-sponsored and nonstate terrorism. Building on the research methods and findings discussed in his previous work, Serenade of Suffering, which covers Middle East terrorism in the period 1968 to 1993, Chasdi presents a detailed statistical and quantitative analysis of four Middle East terrorist systems: in Algeria, Turkey, Egypt, and Israel. He pinpoints the socioeconomic conditions that breed and sustain terrorism, the political factors that ignite terrorist attacks, and those individuals or groups most frequently targeted by terrorists. Tapestry of Terror charts the increasing frequency and intensity of intrastate terrorism in the 1990s; the growing threat posed to Western nations by international terrorism; and the counter-terrorist stratagems and policy decisions needed-now more than ever-to defend against highly coordinated, immensely destructive assaults.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This careful quantitative, events-based analysis provides generous food for thought for scholars and policymakers. -- Michael Stohl, University of California, Santa Barbara
Chasdi. . .[points] to the US's lack of attention to antecedent political and social conditions that lead to terrorist acts. This sound advice is sadly muted in official circles. Scholars, analysts, and strategists should benefit from this book. * CHOICE *
In Tapestry of Terror, Dr. Chasdi has produced one of the most rigorously empirical studies ever published on modern terrorism. . . . Dr. Chasdi's highly ambitious study is an important contribution to the terrorism analytic discipline. -- Dr. Joshua Sinai
Richard Chasdi has already established himself as an important scholar in the field of international terrorism when he published his previous book Serenade of Suffering: A Portrait of Middle East Terrorism, 1968-1993. The current volume will enhancenot only his reputation as an insightful scholar in the field but, more importantly, our knowledge of this increasingly important phenomenonnnn -- Ilan Peleg, from the foreword
