Understanding terror networks by Marc Sageman( Book )

18 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,647 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Challenges conventional wisdom about terrorism, arguing that the key to mounting an effective defense against future attacks from Islamist fanatics is a thorough understanding of the networks that allow terrorist operations to proliferate
Leaderless jihad : terror networks in the twenty-first century by Marc Sageman( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 1,147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Leaderless Jihad, Marc Sageman documents how Islamist terror networks are evolving into more fluid, independent, and unpredictable entities than their more structured forerunners that carried out the atrocities of 9/11. These "homegrown" wannabes form a scattered global network, a leaderless jihad. Although physically unconnected, they constitute a virtual yet violent social movement as their fluid membership drifts to Internet chat rooms that connect them and provide them with inspiration and guidance. As the threat has migrated from outside to inside Western countries, the challenge for governments lies in detecting and neutralizing these groups before they become violent." "Drawing on historical analogies, Sageman argues that jihadism is self-limiting in terms of both structural capability and appeal. Eventually, its followers will turn away from violence as a means of expressing their discontent. The book concludes with Sageman's recommendations for counterterrorism law enforcement efforts. Homeland security, he argues, is best accomplished through a strategy of bringing to Justice real terrorists, containing potential terrorists, and exercising restraint with respect to the Muslim community."--Jacket
Turning to political violence : the emergence of terrorism by Marc Sageman( )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Misunderstanding terrorism by Marc Sageman( Book )

8 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Misunderstanding Terrorism provides a striking reassessment of the scope and nature of the global neo-jihadi threat to the West. The post-9/11 decade experienced the emergence of new forms of political violence and new terrorist actors. More recently, Marc Sageman's understanding of how and why people have adopted fundamentalist ideologies and terrorist methods has evolved. Author of the classic Understanding Terror Networks, Sageman has become only more critical of the U.S. government's approach to the problem. He argues that U.S. society had been transformed for the worse by an extreme overreaction to a limited threat- limited, he insists despite spectacular recent incidents, which he takes fully into account. Indeed, his discussion of just how limited the threat is marks a major contribution to the discussion and debate over the best way to a measured and much more effective response. -- Inside jacket
Le vrai visage des terroristes : psychologie et sociologie des acteurs du djihad by Marc Sageman( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in French and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 7/7 bombers : psychological investigation( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On the day Britain experienced its first-ever suicide bombing, many assumed that those responsible for the carnage must have been deranged foreigners - but they were not. What motivated these four seemingly ordinary young British men? This program conducts a chilling psychological autopsy as it pieces together the mental state of the 7/7 bombers during their final journey. The work of Ariel Merari, of Tel Aviv University, and forensic psychiatrist Marc Sageman is spotlighted as they investigate issues of cultural estrangement, group dynamics and the 'bunch of guys' theory, and the spontaneous formation of extremist cells"--Container

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leaderless jihad : terror networks in the twenty-first century by Marc Sageman( Recording )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the post-September 11 world, Al Qaeda is no longer the central organizing force that aids or authorizes terrorist attacks or recruits terrorists. It is now more a source of inspiration for terrorist acts carried out by independent local groups that have branded themselves with the Al Qaeda name. Building on his previous groundbreaking work on the Al Qaeda network, forensic psychiatrist Marc Sageman has greatly expanded his research to explain how Islamic terrorism emerges and operates in the 21 century. Sageman rejects the views that place responsibility for terrorism on society or a flawed, predisposed individual. Instead, he argues, the individual, outside influence, and group dynamics come together in a four-step process through which Muslim youth become radicalized

La face cachée de Ben Laden( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"La rédaction de M6 revient sur le parcours d'Oussama Ben Laden, l'homme qui fut le plus recherché du monde. Avec soin et pédagogie, La face cachée de Ben Laden, l'homme du Jihad mondial, évoque les grandes étapes de la vie du chef d'Al-Qaeda. Sa jeunesse et les années de formation, l'engagement afghan et la naissance d'Al-Qaeda, la rupture avec l'Arabie Saoudite, le creuset soudanais, la naissance du Jihad global, la fuite et l'héritage... En donnant la parole à des responsables des services secrets américains, à des politiciens, à des journalistes, à d'anciens compagnons d'armes de ben Laden, de nombreuses idées reçues sont contredites. Ainsi, le leader islamiste (aux 53 frères et sœurs !) n'a jamais vécu comme un adolescent occidentalisé. Plus capital, d'anciens membres de la CIA révèlent que les Etats-Unis n'ont jamais approché Ben Laden, il n'est en rien une "créature" de la CIA... Un sujet intelligemment construit à voir pour en savoir plus sur un homme et une organisation terriblement efficace."
