Together with Arabinda Acharya and Wang Pengxin, he has undertaken the difficult and sensitive task of producing an in-depth analysis of the nature and causes of terrorism in China. They make a clear distinction between what might be described as traditional terrorism driven by the political suppression of minority identity and the new more ideological terrorism of Islamist extremism. They successfully pick apart these complex, intertwined themes and have produced a most convincing set of explanations and insights. This is an important book which the Chinese authorities themselves should read with close attention."--Sir Richard Dearlove, Knight.

Gunaratna, Acharya, and Pengxin demystify the paradox concerning China's cooperation as a counter-terror partner and the China that is less than cooperative on human rights issues. The authors have made a difficult topic easy to comprehend."Brigadier General (RET) Russ HOWARD, Founding Director, Combating Terrorism Centre, United States Military Academy, West Point" ""The existing and increasing terrorist threat to China has the potential to reshape the global threat environment. One of the first comprehensive analyses of the threat to China, the book highlights the evolution of Al Oaeda and its implication for the rise of China. This book is a must read not only by scholars, but also by officials engaged in countering terrorism."-Jean-Louis BruguiFre" "With links to the global jihad, the indigenous insurgency and terrorism in Xinjiang challenges the security and stability of." ;
