The lessons of terror : a history of warfare against civilians : why it has always failed and why it will fail again by Caleb Carr( Book )
22 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 2,113 libraries worldwide
We think of terrorism as a relatively modern phenomenon used by fringe political and religious groups, but The Lessons of Terror demonstrates that it is a practice that has existed since time immemorial, and has been employed by national armies as well as extremists. Carr's exploration of two thousand years of terrorism reveals the tactic's consistently self-defeating nature: Far from prompting submission, it only stiffens enemy resolve, and never leads to long-term success or peace. Carr provides a critical historical context for understanding not only individual terrorist acts today, but the Middle East conflict as well

"Some years ago, a remarkable manuscript long rumored to exist was discovered: The Legend of Broken. It tells of a prosperous fortress city where order reigns at the point of a sword--even as scheming factions secretly vie for control of the surrounding kingdom. Meanwhile, outside the city's granite walls, an industrious tribe of exiles known as the Bane forages for sustenance in the wilds of Davon Wood. At every turn, the lives of Broken's defenders and its would-be destroyers intertwine: Sixt Arnem, the widely respected and honorable head of the kingdom's powerful army, grapples with his conscience and newfound responsibilities amid rumors of impending war. Lord Baster-kin, master of the Merchants' Council, struggles to maintain the magnificence of his kingdom even as he pursues vainglorious dreams of power. And Keera, a gifted female tracker of the Bane tribe, embarks on a perilous journey to save her people, enlisting the aid of the notorious and brilliant philosopher Caliphestros. Together, they hope to exact a ruinous revenge on Broken, ushering in a day of reckoning when the mighty walls will be breached forever in a triumph of science over superstition."--Dust jacket
