Reviews

"Terrorist Financing and Resourcing is simply the most comprehensive and authoritative study to date of terrorist group finance and resource creation in the modern era of terrorism. To comprehend the dynamics of what are frequently poorly understood institutions, the author postulates an innovative theoretical frame superior to standard notions of globalization derived from both practice and theory and creates an insightful and practical typology of terrorist institutions. The book is abundant in useful insights with relevance to both the field and policy. Both policy makers and terrorism scholars will benefit from this book." - David H. Sacko, Professor of Political Science, Division Chief Comparative Politics, United States Air Force Academy

"Vittori's systematic typologies and categories help the reader to understand one of the most interesting topics today - terrorist organizations and how they work. The numerous references to specific terrorist groups are insightful and interesting. The book shows how globalization and twenty-first century business practices are shaping the evolving terrorist organizations of today. While attaining analytic rigor, the topic is fascinating for a fairly broad range of readers. A lovely addition to the field." - Jonathan Adelman, Joseph Korbel School of International Studies, University of Denver
