The West's Road to 9/11 offers a detailed explanation of the handling of the challenge of terrorism by the USA, the UK and the West over the last thirty years. David Carlton contends that anti-terrorist rhetoric by the Governments of the West frequently masked indifference to the activities of many practitioners of non-state violence; and that in the case of the United States it did not hesitate even to sponsor those terrorist movements if deemed supportive of its wider geopolitical objectives.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'9/11 generated a proliferation of studies on different aspects of the most devastating terrorist attack in human history. David Carlton, an accomplished chronicler of contemporary political and strategic developments, makes an important contribution to better understand the complex factors that appeased and encouraged modern terrorism since the 1970s. His sober account and analysis should serve as an intellectual wake-up call to the West to seriously ponder future threats, both conventional and unconventional, and craft realistic strategies to combat this unprecedented challenge to the survival of civilization itself.' - Professor Yonah Alexander, Director, Inter-University Centre for Terrorism Studies, USA
