520 Brian Michael Jenkins presents a clear-sighted and
sobering analysis of where we are today in the struggle
against terrorism. Jenkins, an internationally renowned
authority on terrorism, distills the jihadists'
operational code and suggests how they might assess their
situation very differently from how we might do so. He
distills the jihadists' operational code and outlines a
ferociously pragmatic but principled approach that goes
beyond attacking terrorist networks and operational
capabilities to defeating their entire missionary
enterprise by deterring recruitment and encouraging
defections. Jenkins believes that homeland security should
move beyond gates and guards and become the impetus for
rebuilding America's decaying infrastructure. Americans
need to adopt a realistic approach to risk and get a lot
smarter about security. We need to build upon the nation's
traditions of determination and self-reliance. Above all,
we need to preserve our commitment to American values.
Preserving these values is no mere matter of morality, he
argues; it is a strategic imperative. Jenkins brings to
his prose the driving rhythm, no-nonsense language,
passion, and energy of a warrior, and he brings to his
analysis the steady, informed perspective of a historian.
Unconquerable Nation is a rallying cry from a man who has
dedicated his life to defending America, who has been
dismayed by the propagation of homegrown terror, yet who
refuses to surrender his faith in what he believes are
America's finest, unconquerable values. How America deals
with the terrorist threat is one of the major challenges
of this century. Jenkins points the way forward.
