"How al-Qaida Ends: The Decline and Demise of Terrorist Groups"

Journal Article, International Security, issue 1, volume 31

By Audrey Kurth Cronin

Al-Qaida may be at the forefront of the U.S. foreign policy agenda today, but it cannot remain there forever. To speed al-Qaida's demise, the United States should look to the experiences of past terrorist organizations, a step it has been too slow in taking. In hewing to an ahistorical approach to defeat al-Qaida, the United States is following nothing less than a recipe for disaster.



Winter 2002/03

Journal Article, International Security, issue 3, volume 27

By Audrey Kurth Cronin
