From the ancient strategies o Sun Tzu to the activities o contemporary ‘leaderless’ jihadists, George Michael hasprovided a richly detailed, timely, and ascinating account o the evolution o lone wol terrorism and the development o aso-called th generation o warare.”

is Associate Professor of Nuclear Counterproliferation and Deterrence at the AirWar College. He is author of 
The Enemy of My Enemy 
and
Willis Carto and the American Far Right.
The topic o leaderless resistance/lone wol terrorism iscertainly a signicant issue at the present time to both policymakers and academics. . . . A comprehensive scholarly overviewo most o the signicant theories and research on terrorism.”
—Christopher Hewitt,
 
author of 
Understanding Terrorism in America
As globalization continues to process a lot o populist angerover injustices—both perceived and real—stemming romits rapid expansion into traditional cultures, the world is goingto suer a lot more o the ‘leaderless’ terrorism that Michaelexplores in this wonderully evenhanded book. Those huntingor solutions—in addition to the ‘bad guys’—would do wellto add this to their reading list.”
—Thomas P.M. Barnett,
 
Chief Analyst, Wikistrat 
George Michael’s readable, well-researched, and theoreticallyinormed book probes the vital question o the shape that violentnonstate actors will take as we move into an era o governmentausterity and a general weakening o the nation-state, even astechnological advances may allow individuals or small groupsto carry out unprecedented levels o violence. An importantcontribution to our understanding o a problem that willunortunately continue to bedevil us.
—Daveed Gartenstein-Ross,
 
author of 
Bin Laden’s Legacy
In this important book, strategist George Michael argues thatthere has been ‘a shit rom terrorism by organized groups toterrorism by unafliated individuals’ and draws the implicationso this epochal change. He does so by placing this development inthe history o modern warare, surveying the leaderless resistancephenomenon, and persuasively warning about the danger o lonewolves who engage in terrorism ‘on their own initiative with notraditional command-and-control hierarchy.’”
—Daniel Pipes,
 
author of 
Militant Islam Reaches America
“ 
Lone Wolf Terror and the Rise of Leaderless Resistance
is a compre-hensively researched study o the dominant orms o violentresistance today. Michael examines a wide range o causes andideologies and places them in a broader political, historical, anddoctrinal context. This book will be a valuable resource in under-standing the most likely varieties o terrorism in the years ahead.”
