Book Title: Dying to Win: The Strategic Logic of Suicide Terrorism

Author: Robert A. Pape

Book Description:

Pape's book helped midwife the birth of contemporary, cross-national, empirical terrorism studies after 9/11. It certainly ushered me into the field. Pape's work on suicide terrorism, though frequently criticized (including by some of my own work), was critical for orienting a new generation of terrorism scholars who sought better answers to and more systematic analysis about why people engage in terrorism.
