This incisive text casts a clear light on globalization and terrorism as Jamal R. Nassar carefully defines these twin concepts, placing them in historical as well as political context. Focusing on the key case studies of Palestine and Northern Ireland, he applies their lessons to other examples of conflict including Iraq, Afghanistan, the Congo, Chechnya, and Colombia in order to internationalize our understanding of how globalization and terrorism operate in a range of situations. Yet even as the author offers a profound critique of Western hegemony, he conveys hope for an enlightened global interdependence—embracing the power of the dream over the nightmare.
