Abstract : 'Terrorism -- How the West Can Win' is edited by Mr. Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations, and includes essays by 37 other distinguished contributors. The book defines terrorism, discussed the threat to the West, identifies the sources of terrorism, reviews the role of the media and proposes a solution for its elimination. This paper analyzes the book by comparing and contracting its contents with other authors in the field of terrorism. Specific emphasis is placed on the threat to democracies, the terrorist network, the role of the media and the potential solution. The study concludes that Mr. Netanyahu's book offers little to policy makers and other experts in the field, however, it is recommended for the beginner.
