New Book: Cutting the Fuse: The Explosion of Global Suicide Terrorism and How to Stop It

Cutting the Fuse offers a wealth of new knowledge about the origins of suicide terrorism and strategies to stop it. Robert A. Pape and James K. Feldman have examined every suicide terrorist attack worldwide from 1980 to 2009. Their work fundamentally changes how we understand the root causes of the most important terrorist campaigns today and reveals why the War on Terror has been ultimately counterproductive.

Online Suicide Attack Database Presented at Conference in DC

The Chicago Project on Security and Terrorism (CPOST) newly updated its online Suicide Attack Database. The team is directed by Robert A. Pape from the University of Chicago, who recently presented his findings, based on data produced by a six-year study of suicide terrorist attacks around the world, at the conference Cutting the Fuse: Moving Beyond the War on Terror at the Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. on October 12, 2010. He argued that the suicide terrorism was essentially driven by lengthy military occupations rather than a religious motivation. The video of his speech is available via C-SPAN.
