The war on terrorism has not been won, Gabriel Weimann argues in Terrorism in Cyberspace, the successor to his seminal 2006 book, Terror on the Internet. Weimann’s book looks at terrorism’s online reach, recent trends, future threats, and ways to mitigate or counter Internet terrorism.
“Weimann methodically zeroes in on the many ways that terrorists exploit cyberspace. His book offers a disturbing compendium of their techniques and tactics.”—Lawrence D. Freedman, Foreign Affairs
“Terrorism in Cyberspace is a timely and indispensable resource for all those concerned about effectively countering terrorists’ exploitation of the Internet and the dark elements that can reside there.”—Joshua Sinai, Perspectives on Terrorism
“Weimann’s book is engaging and concise, analyzing terrorist communications and critiquing government responses without sensationalism.… The book’s lesson is implicit, yet clear. A long-term strategic approach requires economic opportunity and education reforms that promote critical thinking, to encourage young voices in the Muslim community to create a new round of life stories that push back at extremism.”—Susan Froetschel, YaleGlobal Online
“Terrorism in Cyberspace represents the next step in its author’s decades-long quest to map, analyze, and understand the evolution of terrorist communications since the advent of the Internet and this new form of mass communication.”—from the foreword by Bruce Hoffman
“Terrorism in Cyberspace should seal Weimann’s reputation as a gifted scholar with his finger on the pulse. A compelling portrait of tomorrow’s threat landscape, this is a book to be reckoned with.”—Jane Harman, Wilson Center
“Its sweeping expertise and insight will make it one of the most important and eagerly anticipated books to be published on this subject. It will also be considered as an ‘instant classic’ in the field.”—Joshua Sinai, Resilient Corporation
