The Five Front War: The Better Way to Fight Global Jihad

Noted middle east and terrorism expert Daniel Byman offers a new approach to fighting the war on terrorism in his new book, The Five Front War. He argues that two of the main solutions to terrorism offered by politicians -- military intervention and the democratization of the Arab world -- shouldn't even be our top priorities. Instead, he presents a fresh way to face intelligence and law enforcement challenges ahead: conduct counterinsurgency operations, undermine al-Qaeda's ideology, selectively push for reforms, and build key lasting alliances. Daniel Byman directs the Security Studies Program and the Center for Peace and Security Studies at Georgetown University. He is a Senior Fellow at the Saban Center for Middle East Policy at the Brookings Institution and also served on the 9/11 Commission. He regularly writes about terrorism and the Middle East for The Washington Post, Slate, and other publications.
