"Atran explores the way terrorists think of themselves and teaches us, at last, intelligent ways to think about terrorists."
--Christopher Dickey, Newsweek Middle East Editor and author of Securing the City

Talking to the Enemy by Scott Atran is an eye-opening and important book that offers readers a startling look deep inside terror groups. Based on the author's unprecedented access to and in-depth interviews with terrorists and jihadis--including Al Qaeda, Hamas, and Taliban extremists, as well as members of other radical Islamic terror organizations--Talking to the Enemy provides fresh insight and unexpected answers to why there are people in this world willing to kill and die for a cause. A riveting, compelling work in the tradition of The Looming Tower and Terror in the Name of God, Talking to the Enemy is required reading for anyone interested in making the world a safer, more secure place for everyone.
