While the United States has been at war during the past 10 years fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan, this book chronicles the proceedings of a conference held by the Marine Corps University attempt to “comprehend the multidimensional aspects of Al-Qaida’s threat in various theaters where it has operated over the past decade since the events of 11 September 2001” and more importantly, what Al-Qaida may plan for in the future.
The book and the presenters discuss the far-reaching effects of Al-Qaida all around the world, from Asia to Africa as well as the struggles of the United Nations to quell the organization. According to one presenter, the recent Arab Spring uprisings may have a positive influence on bringing a change to the Al-Qaida organization by getting rid of the roots of religious, cultural, and political underpinnings of terrorism.
This book provides even those with a basic understanding of Al-Qaida and Middle Eastern policies with insight into the ongoing and ever-evolving strategies in diplomacy during and after war. Pick it up at the UW-Whitewater Andersen Library and check it out.
