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.
