Why Focus on Suicide Terrorism

(p.1) Introduction Why Focus on Suicide Terrorism
Cutting the Fuse
University of Chicago Press

This introduction discusses the theme of this book, which is about the causes and origins of suicide terrorism. The book analyzes suicide terrorism campaigns in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Lebanon, Israel, Palestine, Chechnya, and Sri Lanka from 1980 to 2009. The findings provide strong confirmation for the hypothesis that military occupation is the main factor driving suicide terrorism, evidence for new hypotheses about the causes of transnational suicide terrorism.

Keywords:   suicide terrorism, military occupation, transnational suicide terrorism, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Lebanon, Israel, Palestine, Chechnya
