The Five Front War: The Better Way to Fight Global Jihad

By Daniel L. Byman
The Five Front War: The Better Way to Fight Global Jihad book cover

A comprehensive look at the War on Terror and the best way to a safer future. Daniel Byman offers a new approach to fighting the war on terrorism. He convincingly argues that two of the main solutions to terrorism offered by politicians-military intervention and the democratization of the Arab world-shouldn’t even be our top priorities. Instead, he presents a fresh way to face intelligence and law enforcement challenges ahead: conduct counterinsurgency operations, undermine al-Qaeda’s ideology, selectively push for reforms, and build key lasting alliances.
